Intrepidas Group's story

The name of this group is “Intrépidas” (Intrepid Ones). It’s a group of nine neighbors who live in Monterrey, Nuevo León.

Damaris is one of the group members. She’s been with us for two years. She used to belong to the “Chicas de Hacienda” group. She has three children; an 11-year-old, a 9-year-old and a three-year-old. Her husband works as a driver.

Damaris was desperate because they went through a grave crisis when her husband was fired from where he worked. She decided to ask us for a loan to invest in a business and started with some bundles of clothes to sell in the markets. She then started to stock perfume and now her business is growing.

This loan will help Damaris to set up a novelty and gifts store at home so that she won’t have to neglect her children’s care.

In this group: Damaris Rosario, Gloria Marcela*, Karina Scarlet, Lucila, Maria De Lourdes, Miryam Graciela, Rosalinda, Ruth Selene, Susan Ivonne
