Señoras Trabajadoras Group's story

Sra. Leonor is the president of a group of eleven individuals who are involved in different business activities. Together they are requesting a loan from Fundación Realidad. The group is named “Señoras Trabajadoras” (Working Women), which identifies them as extremely hard workers. It is known that they have experience working with loans from another institution, but they decided to change and look for better service and lower interest rates.

Sra. Leonor is 43 years old, married, and has three children in school – one in elementary school, one in high school, and another in college. She supports her family by managing a retail business, a small store where she sells groceries and basic necessities. Leonor has twenty years of experience. She has been working with loans for four years and used them to expand her business, which has increased her sales.

With this current loan, Leonor wants to diversify her business activity by selling footwear. She believes having a second business will increase her income and provide the necessary resources to educate her children. Providing her children with an additional level of education will result in more expenses. Her expectations from this loan are to move forward in her two businesses selling groceries and shoes, and to expand each of them.

The names of the group members and their business activities are listed below:

Leonor O. N., Loan Amount = 5000 MXN, Grocery Sales Rosalinda H. V., Loan Amount = 5000 MXN, Prepared Food Sales Honoria S. B., Loan Amount = 5000 MXN, Prepared Food Sales Laura D.
