25 De Julio Group's story

This photo was taken in Soledad M. B. V.'s tortilla bakery. Soledad is a member of the “25 de julio” (25th of July) group which is located in the state of Puebla in Mexico. You can see the group which she belongs to and also some of the machinery which she uses to make her tortillas. She serves in her tortilla bakery which she set up six years ago. She is requesting this loan to buy corn and flour to make her tortillas. Her customers prefer to buy from her because they consider her tortillas to be good quality and very well made. She fulfils her customers' demands, offers good prices and gives all her customers individual attention. As she requests this loan she is feeling very grateful. She is 35 years old and studied up to the sixth year of elementary school. She is married and has three children; two girls and one boy. In the future, she would like to expand her business and one of her personal plans is to open a savings account so that she can guarantee her children's studies.

In this group: Josefina Rosalva, Graciela, Rosa Virginia, Ana Isabel, Miguel Eucario, Luz Maria, Paula Dolores*, Leticia, Maria, Leticia Celia, Virginia Aurelia, Soledad Maria
