Estrella Resplandeciente Group's story

This solidarity group is made up of four working members and is coordinated by María Elena. She is 62 years old, married and has three children. María Elena works selling footwear and second hand clothing in her home and the surrounding community. This business was set up fifteen years ago with the financial help of her husband. She is asking for a loan to buy packs of pants, dresses, shorts and t-shirts as well as sandals and shoes for men and women. With previous loans, she has been able to pay for her children to study as well as to buy personal items.

The other members are; Maricela, 63, who has been serving food for five years, primarily to workers of the free zone, Teresa, 62, who has run a sewing business in her house for thirty years as well as selling AVON products to the people of her community, and Martha, 57, who has also run a sewing business in her house for ten years.

In this group: Marisela Del Carmen, Teresa Del Rosario, Martha Lidia, Maria Elena
