La Caridad Group's story

The group is called “La Caridad” after the community located in the State of Mexico. It has 10 members.

Maria de Jesus J. finished secondary school. She’s a merchant and has two children, a two-year-old and a five-month-old. She has had a grocery store for three years.

She is asking for the loan to stock her store because her customers want it to be better stocked so that they don’t have to walk too much. What has caused the business to grow over time, though, has been the service she provides.

She is filled with enthusiasm while requesting the loan because thanks to this opportunity she will be able to have a wider variety of products. Her expectations for her life now are very good; she will be able to provide her children with a better living standard.

In this group: Juana, Carmen, Maria De Jesus, Lucero*, Eduwiges, Beatriz, Cristina, Bonifacia, Karen Magali, Seledonia
