Dulce Maria Group's story
This group is called "Dulce María" (Sweet María) because one of the ladies sells sweet treats and is called María Luz. The group is located in the State of Mexico and has nine members. Luz is the group's treasurer. She is 36 years old, has an elementary school level of education, and has three children (one daughter and two sons). Her business is selling sweet treats and she has been in this business for five years. Luz is requesting a loan to invest in a range of sweet treats that her customers are requesting. Most of her customers are children. She receives large orders from children's parties and this is where she makes her best sales. With the profits from her business, she would like to save up and continue requesting loans so that she can eventually obtain her own fixed premises. She feels happy because she is able to contribute towards her family's expenses and also support her children so that they can study and become professionals.
