Las Jarochas Group's story

Las Jarochas is a united group of hard-working women. This group is located in the Emiliano Zapata neighborhood of the city of Tierra Blanca, VeraC..

Cecilia C. S. is the group’s representative. She is 41, and the single mother of three children. She has two girls and a boy. She sells groceries and clothes. She needs the loan to stock her store. Cecilia says that her dream is to expand her store. That way one day she will convert it into a mini supermarket. She feels that because she lives so far from the center of the city, her business will prosper more because people will prefer to buy in her store.

Martines sells shoes, Araceli O. S. J. sells food, Mónica N. Z. sells cosmetics, Martha N. Z. sells shoes, Francisca Z. P. sells chicken, Cecilia C.
