Triunfo Comun Group's story

This group is called 'Triunfo Común' (Mutual Triumph). The women gave the group the name 'Triunfo' ('triumph') because they are winners and 'Común' ('mutual') because they are seeking mutual growth. The group is in the State of Mexico and has 10 members. Yolanda Valdés is the group's president. She is 49 years old and studied tourism at University. She is a merchant who sells manual crafts. Her customers are people from the same community who order novelties for parties. As she requests her loan Yolanda feels happy. She would like to use this loan to invest and obtain more designs. She also hopes to be able to take her children on holiday to the beach. This photo was taken in Yolanda's home. The novelties which she sells can be seen in the photo.

In this group: Yolanda, Maria Guadalupe, Columba, Yuvia Georgina*, Ines, Laura Paricia, Yolanda, Nayhieli Juana, Brenda Patricia, Rosario Consuelo
