Mariposas De San Juan Group's story

This photo was taken in Lidia Francisca P. E.'s house. Lidia is one of the members of the group Mariposas de San Juan [Butterflies of San Juan], which is located in Mexico. Lidia has dedicated herself to raising and selling chickens for the past 20 years. She is requesting this loan to invest in her business, specifically in purchasing chickens. Her clients say that the product that she offers is good. They also argue that Lidia treats them with kindness and has a good character, and it is for these reasons that they buy from her. At the time of requesting the loan, Lidia feels good since she knows that the money will help her to continue growing her business. She is 56 years old, studied until primary school and had 9 children. She is requesting this loan so that she can further strengthen her business. The group is comprised of 10 members.
