Dias De Lluvia Group's story

This group is called “Dias de Lluvia” (Days of Rain) because it rained heavily during the weeks leading up to their promotion ceremony. Nonetheless, this was an important occasion for everyone and did not stop them from forming this group. They live in the community of San Pablo Autopan, in the State of Mexico. The group consists of 10 members and this is the first loan they have requested from CrediComún.

Félix Antonia R. Chávez is a member of the group. She is 50 years old and has a fourth grade education. Félix Antonia is an embroiderer and homemaker who has four children (all sons). She has been producing napkins, tablecloths, decorative backgrounds, and aprons for four years. Félix Antonia is requesting a loan to buy enough fabric and thread for making her embroideries. Her customers are the same women in her community who order aprons and decorative backgrounds, because in this area, people are accustomed to making use of these handcrafted items. Upon requesting her loan, Félix Antonia was very happy that she would be able to have sufficient inventory on hand to complete her work. She needs this loan in order to produce more embroideries. In addition, she hopes to help her husband with tearing down their house and finish rebuilding it gradually over time.

Berta I. P. is another member of this group. She is 32 years old and has a fifth grade education. Berta is married and has three sons. She started a business a year ago selling all kinds of products through a catalog. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy products of different brands that she handles. Her customers already know her because they are her neighbors and they can’t wait for the days when she delivers their orders. At the time she requested her loan, Berta felt very enthusiastic. She wants this loan so that she can have a variety of products. In addition, she hopes to provide her children with the education she was not able to have because she does not want them to be in the same situation.
