Las Amistosas 1 Group's story

The “Las Amistosas” (The Friendly Ladies) group decided on this name because all of its members consider themselves to be happy and sociable. They all get along very well and this is why they decided to form this group and request a loan. This group is located in the State of Mexico.

Martha García R. has a grocery store, which was born from her restlessness of not having a job, but as time passed, she became more interested in her grocery store business. She’s been running this store for five years and tells us that she is proud to have had it for so many years and she hopes to make it more successful and secure a better future for herself. She requested this loan to buy inventory items in order to stock her store better.

Margarita M. G. has had a tailor shop for five years. She tells us that she has enjoyed this trade since she was a little girl, and as an adult decided to dedicate herself to this business. She does all kinds of sewing, from making clothing to simple repairs. She also tells us that she’s been able to get ahead because of this. Her neighbors say that she does very good work and that many people seek her out. She will use the money from this loan to perform maintenance on her sewing machines so that she can continue to give good service to her customers.

In this group: Basilisa, Martha, Ana Elena, Margarita, Samantha Isabel, Araceli, Alicia, Blanca Estela, Felicitas, Belem, Fortunata*
