Divino Rostro Group's story

The members of the Divino Rostro group are Martha S. who sells food from her house, providing a running menu for lunch and dinner; Sandra Vanesa Sequeira who sells cosmetics and silver jewelry; Juana Mercedes who owns a general store in a space at her house; and Maria Auxiliadora R. who travels the country selling "rosquillas" (a local pastry). These women are natives of the city of Diriomo. They're hard-working, entrepeneurial and responsible. As an example of this, we have Juana Mercedes Bermudez who, with much effort, has learned to operate a small general store. She is a woman of 56 with a lot of experience at getting ahead and energy to spare for improving her business even more. She lives with her husband. She works to keep herself but her husband helps with sales and shares the household expenses. Juana says that she is very proud to work with Adim because it's given her the chance to attend seminars and learn to manage her business. Before starting to work with the bank, she thought about closing the business but Adim has taught her that businesses sometimes have to compete with other businesses and that it's nothing more than another of life's challenges. The group always expects its members to repay their loans on time, something that has given them a lot of satisfaction along with the chance to work.
