Flor De Cachi Group's story

This group is called Flor de Cachi because the women who compose it like all kinds of flowers and, since this area does not produce flowers, it would be a rare occurrence that they have any; they would have to buy them. The second part is to mention the name of the community: Guadalupe Cachi. It is located in Ixtlahuca de Rayón, Estado de México. It is made up of 12 members and this is their 5th loan request from CrediComún.

Mariana Álvarez Nicolás , 42, is one of the group members. She completed 8th grade, is a housewife and has three children (one boy and 2 girls). She has raised small farm animals like, lambs and calves, for five years. She is asking for funding to buy animals. At the moment of asking for the loan she is happy because she sees an opportunity to continue growing with her business and becoming financially solvent. She hopes to be able to help her children become educated, since she did not have the opportunity to continue with her schooling due to her parent’s inability to provide her with that help.

She wants the funds to buy feed for her animals. Part of the money will be used to farm her lands in order to have corn and grass to feed her animals. She hopes to sell them at a good price and, with help from future loans, buy more heads of cattle until having a considerable amount that will permit her to have an additional business consisting of animal pelt sales. She also hopes that she will make enough income to build a more comfortable house for her family and, if possible, see to her children become professionals.
