Muñequitas Group's story

This group is called “Muñequitas” ["Little Dolls"] and is located in the state of Mexico. The group has 12 members, including Ms. María Judith J., who is 48 years old. She has run a paper goods store for one year. She explains that before opening her business, she worked in a library. María only studied through secondary school, but this has not prevented her from achieving her dream of being a mother with the ability to offer her children the opportunity to get ahead. Her greatest dream is that her son will get a university education, as in the area where they live, it is common that young people become miners, brick makers, or work in the fields. With the loan offered to her by CrediComun and Kiva, she is going to stock her paper store so she can increase her earnings and therefore strengthen her business.

In this group: María De Lourdes, Diana Isabela, Laura Inocente, Rocio Irene, Maria Judith, Veronica Sandra, Maria Eugenia, Yolanda, Maria De La Luz, Maria Alejandra*, Maria De Los Angeles, Julia Edith
