Luceros En La Manana Group's story

The “Luceros en la mañana” ("Stars of the Future") group is located in Puebla, Mexico. The group has 15 members. Juana P. S. is the group's treasurer. She is 43 years old, has a primary school education, and is a hair stylist. She has one son, who depends on her economically. In the photo, you can see that she has a salon, but little material to work with. She has been doing this job for five years. She would like to invest in stock, such as the dyes she uses most. Juana knows she can attract more clients, if she were to have sufficient stock, and she wants to invest her earnings in her business so that her salon can be one of the most modern and well-equipped in her community.

In this group: Leyba, Norma, Irma, Julia, Concepcion, Martha, Armandina, Yolanda, Arcelia*, Esmeralda, Guadalupe*, Lourdes, Eva, Alicia Araceli, Lucia
