Fenix ( Flat) Group's story

This group is called Fénix (flat) and is made up of three very hard-working members. The name for the group came from a perfume brand name that they like and this is how their group is identified.

Elaine has been working in catalog sales for fifteen years and she is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise. She wants to increase her business income as she needs to buy the merchandise first and then sell it. She started this business to earn some money since she is a single woman with no one supporting her. She needed to earn money to support herself and help her family with the household expenses. With the income she is earning from her business she will buy more merchandise in order to be well stocked and keep her customers satisfied. She will also be happy to make money on every product that she sells. She wants her business to grow a little more every day so that she can rely upon it and get ahead. What she desires most is to be able to buy construction materials to build a house. She became a part of this group after her sister-in-law, Señora Fanny, invited her to join so that they could request a loan to invest in their businesses.

The members of the group are as follows: Olga Lidia Juárez E. sells Ilusión brand clothing and will use the loan to make catalog purchases of pants and blouses. Elaine H. Hernández sells Blondi products and she will use the loan to make catalog purchases of perfumes, blushes, deodorants, etc. Fanny Juárez E. will use the loan to purchase Jafra catalog products such as creams, perfumes, deodorants, lipstick, etc.

In this group: Olga Lidia , Elaine, Fanny
