Sausalito Alalay Group's story

Señora Araceli is 18 years old, single, and has no children. She earns a living by tending to a shop in her neighborhood. She has spent two years in the business. She managed to open her business with help from her mom. A typical day for her is to get up very early to clean her business and then she dedicates herself to its attention.

She met the members of her group because they are neighbors in her area. With this, her first loan, she will invest in the purchase of wholesale merchandise to equip her business, like rice, noodles, sugar, cookies, and sweets.

Her goals and aspirations for this loan and her business are to be able to expand her business and obtain better income. Her goals and aspirations in her life are to be able to have a profession and to help her family financially.
