Arboleda Group's story
This group is called "Arboleda" and is located on the outskirts of the State of Puebla. The group has 12 members and this is the fourth loan that they have requested. They have always made their repayments punctually. Ofelia V. is the group's president. She has a lot of experience in producing different types of vegetables since she has been in this business for 17 years. She attended elementary school and has two sons: one is 12 years old and the other is 14. Her husband farms. Ofelia is requesting this loan so that she can continue investing in producing vegetables such as peas, carrots, corn and chayotes (vegetable pears), and increase her production so that she can reach more people and enable them to eat healthily and without preservatives. She would also like to enjoy a better quality of life and to provide her children with an education, which she was not able to have herself. Ofelia is grateful for her loan since it has meant that she has managed to get ahead through this opportunity that is being given to entrepreneurial women. (Note: the lady who cannot be seen very well is called Libia P.).
