Flor De Oriente Group's story

The women mentioned here are members of the Flor de Oriente group, located in the Montañita community of Chichicaste. Currently they do not have enough capital to continue with their work—for this reason they are asking for a loan. The different jobs of the group are:

Marisela S.—For the past five years has made and sold rosquillas (a type of doughnut). She is a widow and has a daughter who depends on her 100%. With the income she generates with this work she pays for all household expenses as well as her daughter’s studies. She sells the doughnuts on the streets where she lives and every day her life is improving.

Martha A.—For the past four years she has run a small store with everyday goods from her home. She also works making rosquillas. She is a married mother of three children who all depend on her. Her husband works in agriculture (planting corn and beans) and they both generate income to help their family get ahead.

Dilcia S.—For the past six years she has also made and sold rosquillas. She sells her product on the streets and also to grocery stores and small markets in her community. She is married and has 4 children who depend on her. Her husband works in agriculture and the two of them work to improve their home.
