Las Cometas Group's story

This photo was taken at Mireya Hernández Gómez’s stationery shop. She is a member of the “Las Cometas” (Comets) group, which is in Tepeji del Rio, in the state of Hidalgo, México.

She has sold stationery items and novelties for about a year now. She is asking for funds to buy more stock items so that her store will be more attractive. Her customers believe that she provides good service and she always strives to have new items to offer, even if just a trifle; she still needs lots of products.

At this moment, she is happy and thrilled. She is 32 years old, finished 6th grade and has three children (2 girls and 1 boy). She wants the funding to stock her store and have a variety of items available. She hopes to expand her stock so that her store business will grow.

María Mayel Sánchez Pérez is the group president. She is 26 years old, finished high school and has two children (a boy and a girl). She is a hair stylist and opened her beauty shop 2 years ago. She is asking for funds to buy hair dyes, liquids and other supplies to improve customer service.

The group is made up of 10 members. The others are:

• Pérez Gómez Yadira (shoes)
• Pérez M. Felipa Elvira (bedspreads)
• Fernández Quiñones Mará Edith (shoes)
• Mejía B. Abelina (costume bracelets)
