San Marcos Group's story

This group is called San Marcos, named after their municipality which the members are extremely proud of representing. It´s an interesting village where trade and commerce dominate. The members are made up of the following individuals: Francisca G. (sells products from catalogs), Luisa M. (sells perfumes from catalogs), Natividad Albisto (sells cosmetics), Adela Hernández (sells cosmetics), Maria Juana (sells groceries), Yoady E. (sells perfumes from catalogs), Leticia U. (sells perfumes from catalogs), Antonina Damián (sells refreshments and sweets), Yaxiltun B. (sells products from catalogs), Gabriel Ramírez (owns a cyber café), Maria Guadalupe (sells beauty products) and Ada Nely (sells medicine). Luisa M. is the representative of the group. She is married and sells perfumes from Fuller and Avon catalogs. Her most popular items are perfume, cream, and cosmetics. Since she didn't have money, she decided to seek a loan in order to be able to obtain more products and increase her business. In addition, she commented to us that she makes a good living selling these products and so she wouldn't be losing anything by investing in them. She considers herself a hardworking woman with a will to keep fighting to move ahead and fulfill more dreams. She says that with the loan, she will be able to buy a greater variety of perfumes and she is very excited, since that would be a a great new investment towards her business. Luisa says that she and her group are working together to realize their goals and enhance their opportunities. They wish to salute all the individuals out there that are helping them fulfill their dreams and improve the quality of their lives.
