Km 7 Monday Group's story

Liz Muller lives in the ‘Kilometer 7 Monday’ neighborhood and started the group by contacting her neighbors and friends. The group name is also ‘Kilometer 7 Monday’ and this is their seventh loan cycle. They have 17 members, each with their own businesses, and they are very close, supportive, and responsible.

One of the group members is Nancy, who works selling jewelry and has been doing so for a while. Her sales strategy is to travel to her customers because she does not sell much in her shop. She travels to several places to sell her jewelry, such as private and public businesses, where she shows them her merchandise and sometimes leaves them on credit and later returns to pick them up. The business is good for her despite the fact that she does not earn much because sales are difficult. She is satisfied since she can work in this business during her free time without neglecting her family.

Nancy is requesting the loan to purchase jewelry because she does not have enough varieties to sell to her customers.

In this group: Nancy , Tomasa, María, Laura, María, Primitiva, Selva, Epifania, Norma, Rosa, Carmen, Julia, Liz, Rogelia, Baudelia, Diana, Presentación
