Mana Group's story

Ude Mana is the name the group came up with because most of the members believe that God will provide more to those in need the same way He gave us our daily bread. They meet biweekly to make their payments. This group is located in the Infonavit Ferrocrrrilero neighborhood in the city of Tierra Blanca Veracruz. The group is comprised of ten members, but only eight are in the photo.

Marylu Pérez represents the group. She is 48 and has four sons. She sells Tupperware, and she needs the loan to invest in her activity and return to set up her business of selling corn and “esquites”. To see definition,click here.

Marylu’s dream is to set up a fruit and vegetable store. She has a place, but she does not use it because she does not have the resources to stock it.
