Americas ** Group's story

This group is called Américas. They are located in Jiltepec, in the State of Mexico in Mexico. The group is made up of 10 members.
Verónica R. Hernández is a member of the group. She is 40, studied up through 6th grade of primary school. She is a businesswoman and has 2 daughters. For the past 5 years she has been selling ceramics, going from rural community to rural community, from house to house, with weekly payments or bi-weekly, depending on the customers. She is asking for the loan to supply her business more since sometimes collections are slower. Because of this she needs more money to have more inventory to offer her customers. She is planning on buying vases, cups, plates, salt shakers, napkin holders, plant pots, arts and crafts, etc-as much as the loan will cover. She wants this loan to make her business grow and with the earnings that she will generate, she wants to save so that in the future she can fulfill her dream of having her business in its own location. For now she has the walls, but is missing the dishes and accessories so that it will be set up well. She wants to stop traveling from one place to the other and stay in her own place.
