Las Españolas Group's story

This group is called 'Las Españolas' (The Spanish Women) after the Nueva España (New Spain) community. It is located in Atlacomulco, in the State of Mexico. The group has 9 members.

Citlali L. López is a member of this group. She is 25 years old and studied up to the third year of secondary school. She is married and has a 9 month-old son. She works in her grocery business which she set up 3 months ago and in the mornings she works in her plant greenhouse which she set up 3 years ago. She is requesting this loan to increase the products in her grocery store and thereby satisfy her customers' demand and improve her financial stability. She would also, in the future, like to set up an Internet café which will bring her another income. As she requests this loan she feels happy because she has the opportunity to improve her business and achieve her goals in a fairly short space of time. She thereby hopes to be able to provide her son and family with economic stability.

In this group: Rosa, Teresa*, Rafaela, Marisol, Rosalva, Laura, Juana, Angela, Citlali
