El Mirador De Acambay Group's story

This group is called “El Mirador de Acamba” (The Viewpoint of Acamba) because from where they are the group has a beautiful view. It is located in a community in the municipality of Acamba in the state of Mexico.

The group is made up of 10 members.

Fidelina P. P. attended school through secondary school. She is a businesswoman and has a daughter. She sells chicharrón (fried pork rinds). She started this business in Acamba eight years ago and is requesting the loan to purchase propane gas and meat for the chicharrón as people consider hers to be a very tasty product compared with the competition. At this time as she is requesting the loan, she feels very sure that she will get ahead with the loan and also that it will benefit many people, especially her daughter as the final destination of all of her work is her daughter. In the future she sees herself as a successful businesswoman, which she hopes to achieve with the help of loans.
