Responsables De Jalpa Group's story

This group is called “Responsables de Jalpa” (Responsible Ones of Jalpa) because all of the members are very reliable. The group is located in Mexico. This community is known for its handicrafts. The group is comprised of 11 members.

Leonor C. S. is a member of the group. She is from San Juan Jalpa, and she is 50 years old. She went to school until the third year of high school. She has a total of five children; three of them are dependent upon her. She has lived in this community for 50 years. She works with livestock (raises and sells sheep). She started this activity ten years ago.

The loan she is requesting is to buy feed to fatten the sheep. Her customers say that the sheep that Leoner sells are well taken care of and well fed. This inspires confidence in buying one of her sheep because the customers are sure they are getting a quality product.

Leonor is pleased to request this loan. Little by little she wants to buy more sheep. Upon doing so she will have her own well established farm.

In this group: Teresa Catalina, Edith, Leonor, Maria Rocio*, Raquel, Maria Cristina, Maribel, Teresa, Yolanda, Ma Guadalupe, Ma Del Pilar
