Las Sirenas Group's story

The group "Las Sirenas" ("The Mermaids") has ten members. The women get together every week to make their payments. They consider themselves entrepreneurial and hard-working. The group is based in Tierra Blanca VeraC..

The group's representative is C. Maria Gómez AndraD.. She is 34 years old and has two children. She works selling bedspreads, which take great effort to bring from the state of Oaxaca. She needs the loan to get a new supply, because she says she is doing very well. Mrs. C. Maria's dream is to have a clothing store, so that she can continue helping her husband with their household costs and give her children a better quality of life.
