A loan of $3,475 helped a member to buy corn to make tortillas.


Arcoiris De Huitel Group's story

This group is called 'Arcoiris de Huitel' (Huitel Rainbow) because its members believe that rainbows bring good luck and also because a rainbow has no beginning and no end and that is how they think of their businesses and, above all, their friendship.

This group is located in the city of Tula de Allende Hidalgo. Mrs Maria Margarita P. is the group's president. She is 55 years old and studied up to the third year of elementary school. She has four children who are already married. Maria sells hand-made tortillas which she cooks in a 'comal' (a flat earthenware pan). She has had this business for eight years. Maria is known in the community and for this reason her tortillas sell very well. She serves her customers with attention and kindness. She would like this loan to buy corn so that she can make better quality tortillas and also enjoy a better quality of life.

In this group: Maria Margarita, Josefina, Paz, Virginia, Yazmin, Teodora, Maria Del Rosario*, Ma Luisa, Virginia, Griselda
