San Judas Tadeo 2 Group
In this Group: Marisela , Claudia , Hilda , Esperanza , Reyna , Teresa , Nicolasa, Francisca
San Judas Tadeo 2 is the name of this group of eight women. They decided on this name because they are very devoted to this saint as in Mexico he is known as the saint of difficult or impossible situations. They live in a sugar-cane growing area, and their community is the location for the IRSA sugar factory which produces molasses from sugar cane.

The following women are members of the group:
Marisela--sells clothing
Claudia--sells popsicles
Hilda--sells Mexican snacks
Esperanza--sells soft drinks
Reyna--sells Mexican snacks
Teresa--sells Mexican snacks
Nicolasa--sells Mexican snacks
Francisca--sells Mexican snacks

Marisela is one of the members of the group. A year ago she started selling clothing to her friends and neighbours. She notes that when she started out, it was difficult as she had no customers and she didn’t know if she could earn a profit. However, even though it was a difficult time, she did manage to find customers and gradually her customer base grew.

Even today she continues to sell from door to door, and sometimes her customers seek her out to make special orders, or when there is a fiesta, they want to buy something simple from her to give as a present. Marisela says, “I have had lots of good experiences from selling, and I have made good friends, but it has also taught me that I cannot trust everyone. Some people don’t want to pay you and I lose money.”

A loan through VisionFund will give Marisela the opportunity to buy shirts, blouses, socks, skirts, pants, dresses, shorts, and underwear.

She is 43 years old, didn’t go to school, is married to Epifano, and has two children. In the future she would like to rent a small business in which she can display her merchandise.

Actualmente continua vendiendo casa por casa y en algunas ocasiones sus clientes la buscan para hacerle pedidos especiales o cuando hay una fiesta la buscan comprar algo sencillo para regalar.

Ella dijo "mi venta me ha dado buenas experiencias he conocido y hecho buenos amigos pero también me ha enseñado no se puede confiar en todas las personas ya que algunos no les gusta pagar y son perdidas para mi pero hay vamos echándole ganas todo se logra".

Un credito de VisionFund le dará la oportunidad de comprar camisas, blusas, calcetines, faldas, pantalones, vestidos, shots y ropa interior.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
