A loan of $3,650 helped a member to invest in her business.

Cruzero Group's story

This photo was taken on the pig farm belonging to Blanca S. who is a member of the 'CRUZERO' group which is located in Puebla in Mexico. To one side of the photo you can see the 'lechones' (young pigs) which she puts a lot of effort into raising. She raises and sells pigs and started her business 10 years ago. She is requesting this loan to buy feed for her pigs. Her customers prefer to buy their pigs from her because she provides them with high quality and clean meat. Right now she is happy about this new loan because she plans to invest in the building of more pigsties (where the pigs are raised). She is 51 years old and studied up to the third year of elementary school. She is married and has one daughter. She hopes that with the building of the pigsties she will have more space to increase her production. The group has 12 members and this is the second time that they have requested a loan from CrediComún.

Note: At the moment the photo was taken Mrs Teresa E. moved a little bit but she can still be seen.

In this group: Emilia, Lucia, Teresita, Macedonia, Teresa, Juana, Adriana, Angelina, Alma Delia, Claudia, Blanca, Ana Lilia
