A loan of $2,125 helped a member to invest in clothing sales.

Mujeres Audaces Group's story

This photo was taken in Josefina C.O.’s business. She’s a member of the Mujeres Audaces (Daring Women) communal bank located in the Mexican state of Puebla. We can see her merchandise in the photo. She is a clothing merchant, a business she started 13 years ago.

She is asking for funds to invest in the clothing sales business but she is also thinking about starting to sell groceries. People like her very much and recognize her as a hard working person. At present, she is stocking both kinds of items in the same location.

At the moment of requesting the loan she is very excited because she feels that this will make it possible for her to invest more in her business and be able to fill all her pending orders from customers on time.

She is 38 years old and finished 9th grade. She’s married and has three children, two girls and one boy.

She wants this loan so that in the future she can have a separate location for each type of business. She hopes that with combined profits from both businesses she will be able to add on to her home.

Maricela M.M. Pastry sales.
