Chiquillas De San Gabriel Group's story

This group is called “Chiquillas D. San Gabriel” (Youngsters from San Gabriel) because the members are from the community of San Gabriel Las P. in the State of Morelos, Mexico. This community is distinguished by its exuberant nature, an old hacienda, and a resort that make it a tourist attraction.

The group consists of ten members. Sra. Gabriela B. is the group treasurer. She is 39 years old and has a second graD. education. Gabriela is a businesswoman who has five children, four daughters and a son. She sells perfumes and blankets. Gabriela has been in business for ten years and is requesting a loan to buy blankets to sell for the upcoming winter season. Upon submitting her request, she felt very happy because this will be her first loan. The earnings she generates will be invested in a better education for her children since three of them are still in school.

In this group: Blanca Flor, Lizet, Ines, Asalia Azucena, Marisol, Isabel, Anita, Estefania, Rocio, Gabriela
