Fenix De Fuego Group's story

Fénix de Fuego is a group comprised of two women and two men. They are located on Alfredo del Mazo Avenue in the Santa Cruz neighborhood. This is in the state of Chalco in México. All of them feel pleased being in the group because they know each other and have good communication.

Alejandra B. L. represents the group. She is 40 years old, and she went to school up to high school. Her husband works as a driver. They have two children, a girl and a boy. They go to elementary school and high school.

She started working for a musical instrument place. Later, she decided to open her own business. She currently sells musical instruments and rents equipment for events. She opens her business very early everyday.

She needs the loan to invest in her business. She will buy things like microphones, guitar strings, drum sticks, drum patches, and smoke machines, etc. Alejadra says that even though she has competition, she does not give up. She tries to keep her customers and win recommendations from others by giving good prices. Her plans are to be able to expand her business, open another location in another place, and to keep growing as a person.

The other members of the group are:
María de Jesús O.: Sells Clothing for Women
Amado G. R.: Veterinarian
Marcelino Martínez Hernández: Bicycle Shop

Even though it is a small group, they have a great desire to improve themselves. They want to invest in their businesses to be able to have income and meet their goals.

In this group: Alejandra, Maria De Jesus, Amado, Marcelino
