Los Ceibos Group's story

The group "Los Ceibos" is lead by Carmen. All of the members are street vendors, selling such items as sweets, clothing, and food, and providing seamstress, messenger, and public transportation services. They are people of few resources but much honor, and they desire greatly to work their way toward further success. It is for this spirit that the Agrocapital Foundation offered the group an opportunity to improve their quality of life by improving the small businesses which they rely on to proviD. for themselves and their families. The funding they receive is designated for the purchase of raw materials and supplies, the sale of which would help them to improve their workplace. The members have experience working with financial assistance from the Agrocapital Foundation, and they have demonstrated both punctuality and responsibility in their relationship with the foundation. Within the group there is a relationship between Omar Willy and Eddy Fidel, but both members have totally independent sources of income, so this situation causes absolutely no problem within the group.

In this group: Maria Del Carmen, Delma, Claudia, Clotilde, Celia, Omar Willy, Eddy Fidel, Silvia Martha*, Edi, Mariano Casimiro, Emelia, Sonia Yaneth*
