Las Gualupitas Group's story

This group is called Las Gualupitas. The name originates from the fact that in this community they are very devoted to the Virgin of Guadalupe and Gualupitas is a word derived from it. The group is composed of 11 members and is located in Tehuacan, Puebla in Mexico.

Julia C.D. is a member of this group. She is 48 years old and didn't have the opportunity to study. She is married and has a total of 4 children, two boys and two girls. Julia sells groceries, a business that she started over eight years ago. She is applying for a loan to purchase merchandise, with the final outcome of expanding her business and also investing in the sale of food, since she is located on the side of the road and has had customers request this service. Her customers consider her to be a very hard-working woman, hygienic, and with an impeccable reputation. Senora Julia is grateful for this loan since she will be able to fulfill her plans that had seemed so far and difficult to reach but now seem to be just around the corner. She hopes to continue to grow her business and remodel it.

In this group: Martha, Juana, Julia, Isabel Guadalupe, Malena, Maria Azucena, Carmela, Guadalupe, Rocio, Ernestina*, Leovigilda, Maria Guadalupe*
