Los Tres Amigos Group's story

This solidarity group is made of five successful members, and is coordinated by Martha, 42 years old, single, and a merchant of new clothing on the southern border of the country. This business began six years ago, when she decided to leave her job to start this business from the settlement she got, and in that way make herself into an enterprising small businesswoman. The credit she requests is for women's pants, men's pants, children's clothing, spaghetti strap tops, blouses, underwear, etc. The other members are Luis, 44 years old, owner of a barbershop in his home, and Aimee, 22 years old, and owner of a clothing and cosmetic shop in her home, Valeria, 29 years old, who sells new clothing in her community, and Ofelia, 20 years old, a new clothing merchant to the residents of her community and university student, to pay for the costs of her university degree.

In this group: Valeria De Los Angeles, Luis Hernan, Aime Lucia, Martha Azucena, Ofelia Del Socorro
