Anonymous Group's story

The name of this economic development unit is San Luis because that’s the name of the community. Economic Development Units are groups of 10 people that have a bank account and that meet weekly or bi-weekly to make their payments. The unit has a representative and a governing board. This group is in the San Luis community in the state of VeraC.. It has 11 members. The group representative is Juana R. A., 38, who is married and has three children, 1 girl and 2 boys; she finished third grade. She sells snacks and needs funding to buy the ingredients she needs like: meat, masa (dough for tortillas), vegetables, and kitchen utensils. Her customers say that she cooks delicious, well-seasoned dishes. Even though she opens only on week-ends, her establishment is very clean. Juana wants this loan so that her business will grow, to earn profits to reinvest in her snack sales, and to earn higher profits so that she and her children can have a better standard of living. Emilia O. González, 46, is on the governing board of this group. She finished 6th grade and has 3 children, one girl and 2 boys. She sells groceries and needs funding to stock her store. She will buy rice, cooking oil, beans, soups, sweet beverages and cookies. Her customers say that she is very kind and responsible and she opens for business very early. In the future, she would like to enlarge her store because it is a bit small. Emilia wants this loan to enlarge her business, to earn better profits to reinvest to have a better-stocked store and, in the future, to enlarge her store. The other nine members are: Hilda P. O., Elia R. Vázquez, Esperanza C. M., Susana B. R., Lucila S. R., Verónica M., Karla Patricia R. O., Edith Araceli E. U. and Grisel O.
