Pastorcitas Group's story

This group is called Pastorcitas and is located in the community of Puente de Ixtla in Morelos State, Mexico. The community is distinguished by the spas that exist in the region and Lake Tequesquitengo, which makes the region an attractive tourist spot. The group is composed of 10 members. Delfina Jiménez García is a member of the group. She sells handmade tortillas, a business that started 4 years ago. She is seeking a loan to buy corn for making tortillas. She is 59 years old, has a 5th grade education, is married and has a total of 5 children, ages 42, 36, 34, 32, and 24 respectively. As she is requesting the loan, she is happy because in the same place where she sells tortillas, she plans to start a business of selling tacos al pastor (pork tacos). She wants this loan to buy utensils for taco preparation. With the earnings she generates, she is thinking of buying tables and chairs for her taco stand.

In this group: Ma Guadalupe, Delfina, Angelica Maria, Maria Teresa, Elizabeth, Minerva, Mayra, Maria De Jesus, Guillermina, Juana
