Pino Suarez Group's story

This group is called "Pino Suarez", because that is the name of the street in which it is located, in the Mexican state of Hidalgo. Rosa Hernández is a member of this group. She is married and has a 14-year-old son, who is her dependent. Rosa has no education, but she has worked selling sweets and enchiladas outside her home for 21 years. She seeks this loan to buy inputs for her business. She is very happy to get this loan because she will be able to invest and establish more business for the Day of the Dead, as sweets and enchiladas are traditional for this region.
