Ovejitas Group's story

This group is called “Ovejitas” (Lambs) because they consider themselves to be lambs guided by God. The group is located in the San Cristobal community within the State of Mexico, and is made up of 11 members.

Francisca M. is one of the members. She is 50 years old and has an elementary school education. She is a merchant, has an 18 year old son, and has been selling kitchen items for the past two years. She is asking for this loan in order to resupply her inventory because her sales increase this time of year.

Her customers are friends and neighbors from her community. She is excited about this loan because one of her new year’s goals is to grow her sales and increase her income for herself and her son.
