Gaviotas Group's story

The members of the “Las Gaviotas” (The Seagulls) group, represented by Ms. Silvia, sell clothing and cosmetics, and manage general stores. The male group member works as a public transportation driver. As in all commercial spheres, there is always competition in the market, especially because of supply and demand. However, these members are hard-working and enterprising people who know how to get ahead under any circumstance. The loan will be used to increase merchandise and supplies. The male group member will use the money to repair his vehicle’s engine. The majority of the members have previously participated in other solidarity groups, which means that they know about the operational moD. at Fundación Agrocapital, demonstrating responsibility and punctuality.

In this group: Silvia, Carmen Rosa, Trifonia, Ruth Mildren, Carmen, Viviana, Venedicto, Victoria, Maria Eliana, Silvana, Corina, Gabriela, Cristina, Evelin
