Bicentenario Xx Group's story

This group is called Bicentenario XX because it believes that it belongs to a generation that has revolutionary principles based on the work that stimulated the development of the country. It is located in Puebla, Mexico, and is made up of nine people.

María Juana B. G. is a member of this group. Fifty-four years old, she studied until first grade in elementary school. She is married and has one daughter in all. She works selling flowers and plants, something she began two years ago. She is requesting the loan in order to buy land and seeds, so as to have a more extensive variety of plants. Her customers are proud to get a large variety of plants that aren't very typical of this region. At the time of requesting the loan, she felt very happy to get this kind of opportunity to be able to expand her business. She would like this loan in order to build a greenhouse. She also hopes to get better profits, as with this income she hopes to continue to support her daughter's studies so that she can have a career and have a better quality of life.

Teresa P. S. is 42 years old and studied until her third year of high school. She sells foodstuffs and has two children, a girl and a boy. She works in a grocery store, which she opened six years ago. She is requesting the loan to purchase oil, sugar, and ham, in order to have a better selection of supplies.

In this group: Elizabeth, Maria Juana, Marcelina, Catalina, Teresa, Mercedes, Ana Miriam, Juana Rita, Nancy
