Mujeres Audaces Group's story

This picture was taken in front Sra. Gloria J. C.'s store. She is a member of the communal bank “Mujeres Audaces” (Bold Women), which is located in Puebla, México. In the photograph, you can see her business as well as some of the groceries that doña Gloria makes her living selling. She has run her business for 6 years. Her customers say that they purchase basic goods from doña Gloria because hers are more accessible than in other stores. Doña Gloria is happy with her loan and is pleased that someone trusts in her and in her companions. She is 38 years old, and although she only had the opportunity to attend elementary school, it hasn't prevented her from getting ahead. She is the mother of 3 children, two girls and one boy. With the loan, she plans to continue investing in her grocery store and increasing her number of customers as well as her merchandise. She is firm in her plans to expand her house; she would feel happy about generating more wealth for herself and for her family. She also plans to provide an education for her children, so that they can get a degree and have more opportunities in life.
