Las Mariposas De Rafael Alvarado Group's story

This photo was taken in Angélica Rebeca C’s house, a member of the Las Mariposas de Rafael Alvarado (Rafael Alvarado’s Butterflies) group located in the Mexican state of Veracruz. The women can be seen in the place where Angélica prepares her food.

She has sold home-made food for 7 years. She is asking for funds to buy furniture like tables and chairs as well as some pots she needs. Her customers consider her to be a very responsible, hard working woman with a good talent for cooking tasty food.

At the time of requesting the loan she feels happy because she will reinvest in her business. She is 53 years old and finished high school. She is single and has two children (a boy and a girl).

She wants the loan to buy furniture to provide better service. She also hopes to improve her economic situation and do some home improvements in order to provide her family with an improved quality of life.

In this group: Ana Maria, Angelica Rebeca, Maria Guadalupe, Maria Cristina, Paula, Selene, Areli, Elizabeth, Mayra Edith
