Las Gardenias Group's story

The "Gardenias" group is represented by Elena María and consists of 14 members who live in the same area. The majority of the members work selling products like groceries, cosmetics, cell phones, hair care, soft drinks, food, shoes and vegetables, as well as activities like public transport. Despite the competition in the market, the partners know how to succeed thanks to their experience and their drive to get their families ahead. The funding will be used for the purchase of materials, inputs and tools to improve their incomes and thus give their families a better quality of life. Most of the partners have experience in solidarity groups in their previous work with institutions just like Fundación Agrocapital. All of the members know how to manage the funds and understand the necessary responsibilities.

In this group: Elena Maria, Nelva, Reina Isabel, Ines, Jimmy Victor*, Carmen Rosa, Abigail, Senovia, Beatriz Graciela*, Juana, Lizeth Avigail, Isabel, Lorena Lupe, Frida
