This loan group is named ‘Quickly’ because they never imagined that they would receive services in such a short time. The group is located in the State of Mexico and it has 10 members.

EstheL. L. is the group’s treasurer and studied until the 1st year of secondary school. She is a homemaker and has two daughters who are 6 years old and 4 months old. For the past 4 years she has dedicated herself to raising and selling chickens; she comments that thanks to her investment in her chicken business, she was able to build her house, which is still not finished. She hopes that with this loan she will be able to invest more in her business, given that this is the season in which has the most sales. EstheL. sells her chickens in the El Tianguis community, and also sells to people from nearby communities who come to her home to make their purchases.
