Mariposas De Endare Group's story

This group is called Mariposas D. Endare because they liked the name. It’s located in the Santa María Endare neighborhood in the state of México. The group has 10 members.

Mrs. Felipa Manuela T. is a group member. She is 52 years old and sells stationery supplies and animal feed. She has a total of 10 children, 7 girls and 3 boys. Currently, five still depend on her, two are in high school, one is studying toward a Bachelor’s in the Atlacomulco Normal School, one is in middle school and one is in elementary school.

She is asking for the loan to buy feed because during the school vacation periods the stationery shop’s sales drop.

At the moment of asking for the loan Felipa Manuela feels very enthusiastic because she’ll be able to invest in her business. She is a very hard working person because together with her husband she’s managed to raise her children and proviD. them with the opportunity to go to school.

She intends to use the opportunity this loan gives her to continue to support her daughters so that they will finish their schooling and not be dependent on anyone since that will allow them to find a job and not have to go through what she herself has.

In this group: Candelaria, Maria Elena, Felipa Manuela, Maria Guadalupe Esmeralda, Yolanda, Ramona, Jannete*, Irma, Teresa, Maria Del Rosio
