Las Divinas De Mendoza Group's story

This photo was taken in Silvina L. C.’s house; she’s a member of the “Las Divinas de M.” (M.’s Divine Ones) group which is in the Mexican state of VeraC.. In it we can see the women gathered around Silvina’s products. She has sold catalogue cosmetics for 10 years. She’s asking for funds to buy more stock merchandise in order to increase her sales. She started the business 10 years ago to augment her family’s income. At this moment, she is satisfied for having obtained the loan and she is eager to see everything turn out well so that in the future the loan amount might be increased. She is 64 years old, did not go to school, is widowed and has 6 children (3 girls and 3 boys). She wants this loan in order to help out one of her daughters with the raising of her son who is currently living with Silvina while he goes to high school nearby. She also hopes to be able to finish building her house in the future adding a terrace to enlarge it and improve her living conditions. María de Lourdes Rodríguez, 37, is group president. She finished elementary school, is married and has no children. She has sold catalogue shoes for 7 years. She is asking for funds to buy her pending orders and increase her customer base because she’d like her business to grow thus improving her family’s quality of life. The group has 13 members and it is the first time it’s applied for a loan from CrediComun. The other group members are: María Marcela C. González, grocery store; María Estela M. M., snacks sales; Irene Márquez F., snacks sales; Adriana F. Rodríguez, catalogue clothing sales; Miriam G. Pérez, underwear sales; Rosa María Solís C., snacks sales; Rosa Elena M. Martínez, grocery store; Graciela Ricaño G., underwear sales; Norma T. Ríos, snacks sales; Antonia T. Ríos, catalogue shoe sales and Raquel S. Vázquez, handicrafts sales.
