Corazoncitos I Group's story

This group is called “Corazoncitos I” [Hearts] because its members regard themselves as people with good hearts. It is made up of 9 members, and they are in the State of Hidalgo in Mexico. Mrs. Maria de Jesus M. is the group’s president. She is 38 years old and has two children, a son and a daughter. She completed five semesters of Business Administration and has been a merchant for three years selling lingerie and shoes.
She requests the loan to buy merchandise wholesale, because wholesale purchases grant her a good discount. Her costumers consider her a kind person who treats them with respect and she strives to keep them satisfied.
Mrs. M. started her business in the town of Tula where she had few costumers but after her moving to Pachuca, she has proven to be a good salesperson and the number of costumers is steadily increasing.
She feels happy and hopeful requesting this loan because it would allow her to fulfill several orders already placed by some of her costumers. She also hopes to build a place for her business outside of her house which would help her to increase her sales.

In this group: Graciela, Maria De Jesus, Ma Gabriela Irma, Maria Rosalba, Emma Isabel, Olga, Jesahel, Isabel, Edith
