Maravillas Group's story

This group is called “MARAVILLAS” (Marvelous) because its members are very devoted to the religious image of the Marvelous Lord, which is venerated near their community. They are also proud because they do marvelous things with their money, making it return 100% profit in their respective businesses.

This group is located in Puebla, Mexico and is made up of ten achieving women, each having her own successful business. This is their fourth cycle working with CreditComun and they have always been punctual with their payments. They will use the money from this loan to buy supplies (fabric for making stuffed animals, different sizes of artificial eyes, thread, and stuffing).

The group’s treasurer is named María de Lourdes Nieves A.L. and she is the group’s most honest and responsible person. This is why she was elected to this position among the other officers. She is 45 years old, has a junior high school education, is single, and makes and sells stuffed animals. She is a very enterprising woman and designs her own items. Her peers see her as a person to be emulated, despite her limited formal education. With a lot of effort she’s been able to establish a large number of customers.

For her, success would mean opening her own stuffed animal factory and creating her own brand. She also dreams of becoming known throughout the world and exporting her products. Her goal in life is to create jobs for other women, who, like her, dream of providing good educations for their families, so that they don’t suffer from the same needs that they have had to deal with. These loans have made it possible for each of them establish their small businesses.

The other members of the group are:

Gabriela A. L. – Cosmetic sales
Josefdina G. T. – General merchandise
Irma A. L. – Shoe sales
Maria Rosa Ignacia G. M. – White sales
