Las Nubecitas Group's story

This group is called "Las Nubecitas" (The Little Clouds), and is made up of three women, Urema, Bellarmina and Teresa.
Doña Teresa lives on the “Julian Grajales” shore in the municipality of Copainala, Chiapas. The community is known as “San Antonio”. Doña Teresa has been married to Sr. Oscar for 14 years; together they have one son, who is in 2nd grade. She is happy and pleased to have a good family.
She is requesting the loan in order to open a grocery store and purchase merchandise, such as: beans, sugar, oil, eggs, flour, cookies, milk, soap and other items. In this way, she will be able to work and to help her husband with the household expenses. He works outside their neighborhood as a radio electronics technician.
The other two members use their loans in other businesses. Doña Bellarmina uses hers to purchase pigs, and Urema also uses hers for a grocery store.
Sra. Teresa's greatest wish is that her business grows each day and be a place where she can work as the clerk. She also wants to see her son grow with a good start to his education and a have good future.

In this group: Teresa, Urema, Bellarmina
