Florida Group's story

The FLORIDA group, represented by Olga, is a group of 17 partners, of which 16 are women and one is male. They are very responsible people with an enthusiastic work ethic who are very committed to their institution. The majority of the female partners sell fast food on the streets of their neighborhoods; others sell shoes, groceries, vegetables and soft drinks, and the male partner builds houses. In general, they already have experience with group solidarity, and are now enrolling in their second loan cycle with Fundación Agrocapital. In the previous cycle, they demonstrated responsibility and cooperation. These finances will be used to increase the mobile food sales and to improve their small businesses to ensure the wellbeing of their families. There are some family relations among the partners, but each has economic independence.
