La Casita De Juan Group's story

This group is called La casita de Juan (Juan’s Little House) because the group could not agree on a name, and so they chose the name of Mrs. María Gloria’s husband, the one who organized the group. It is located in Cuatla de Morelos in Mexico. The group is made up of 10 members. María Gloria Cabrera is the group’s treasurer. She is 44 years old, sells Jafra products, is the leader of a group of saleswomen, and has two children. She has done this work for eight years. Her husband, Mr. Juan Castañeda, is a farmer and works cultivating gladiola. She has benefited from this work, as they have made improvements to their house thanks to her income. In addition to feeling pride for her hard work, she has also earned a lot of recognition and prizes such as trips to Cancun, Acapulco, and the one she will never forget was the trip she won to Paris, France. She says that because of her economic situation, she never would have thought she would be able to visit those places. She will use the loan to buy products and to always have what her customers request.

In this group: Maricela, Maria Gloria, Angelina, Soledad, Angela, Juana, Juana, Azucena Karina, Gabriela, Ma Magdalena
