Las Angelitas Group’s story

Diana is a cheerful and hard-working woman, she is a single mother of a young girl who goes to preschool. It is worth mentioning that she is also from a community full of traditions and with a great variety of natural riches.

Three years ago, she began selling shoes from a catalog. “Although my efforts are doubled, I don’t feel bad because when I see my little girl’s smile, I am filled with energy,” she said emotionally. Currently, her sales have been increasing and the times with the greatest impact are the end of school and the beginning of the new cycles because the parents ask for shoes for their children.

On the other hand, thanks to the loan she was able to purchase land where she will build a house in addition to being able to reinvest in more shoes for her business.
