Capilla Conchita Group's story

This group is called CapilL. Conchita because their businesses are located in front of the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception in the State of Mexico. The group is composed of 10 members and this is the 4th time they have solicited a loan through CrediComún. Leydy is 22 years old, married, and has completed the 6th year of primary school. She is married and has no children. Leydy is dedicated to the production and sale of bread, a business she started 3 years ago. She is soliciting a loan to buy flour, sugar, and supplies for her stall. Her clients are from the surrounding area and she sells on market days. Leydy also sells to people from the same locality when there is a special event. Besides bread, she also makes pizza, which she sells whole or by the slice. As she solicits this loan, Leydy feels very satisfied because she has just finished repaying a loan and is contemplating investing the new loan. It has cost her much work to keep the businesses going. Despite the current economic situation, she has managed to grow, little by little, thanks to the loan, and to her husband's help. Leydy suffered very much upon starting production, because she was helping her parents who permitted her to use their oven. Then after she decided to become independent, it cost her much effort to take charge of her own affairs. She hopes that in time, and with the h Help she will receive with this loan, she will be able to increase production, because she wants to expand her business, and that this will permit her to work hard to maintain the children that she plans to have. For the moment, she only focuses on the idea of working to make her business larger. The other members of the group are: Crisanta (seasonal decorations) Laura (raising animals) Maria Guadalupo (raising and selling chickens) Carolina (raising cattle) Susana (raising and selling chickens) Carmen (selling vegetables) Amalia (selling clothes) Araceli (selling vegetables), and Lourdes All of these women appear in the photo except, from shyness, Guadalupe and Carolina remain a bit hidden among their companions.
