Express De Xico Group's story

Alvaro is 37 years old, married, and has 6 children. He lives in the community of San Miguel Xico, 1st section, Valley of Chalco Solidaridad, in the State of Mexico.

Alvaro used to work as a butcher in a meat shop, earning a salary which more or less provided for basic expenses. But it didn't cover all of his necessities. For that reason, he decided to open his own business selling beef. He has been attending this business for about 1 year and 3 months. Although his business has prospered, he would like to increase his earnings by selling pork. But he lacks the money to invest.

Recently, he joined others he knew who have similar needs in approaching Fundacion Realidad to solicit a loan to help obtain the funds he needed to invest in his business. They accepted him and, for that reason, Alvaro is requesting a loan to invest in expanding his butcher shop. His major motive is to advance his 6 children in their studies.

Alvaro thanks Fundacion Realidad in advance for the credit he is soliciting. His group is called Express de Xico and the members (and their activities) are as follows:
Claudia Catalog sales of eiderdowns and sheets
Ma. de Lourdes Coverlets
Catalina Making clothing and sweaters
Lilia Pharmacy
Blanca Flor Catalog shoe sales
Ada Linen goods

In this group: Alvaro, Maria De Lourdes, Catalina , Lilia , Blanca Flor , Ada, Claudia, Yolanda, Erick , Aldo Martin , Silvia
