La Benito Juarez Group's story

This group is called Benito Juárez because that is the name of the neighborhood where they live. It is located in Mexico in the state of MoreL., and the community stands out for its traditional fish market which was November 28th. The group is comprised of 10 members and Roció Gutiérrez is the group treasurer. She works selling groceries, a business which she began a year ago. She is requesting a loan to purchase more merchandise for the store. She is 36 years old, has secondary education, and is married with four children – three girls (15, 11, and 5 years old) and a small 3-year-old son. Her customers feel at ease because they always find the products that they need. Upon applying for her loan, she is happy because she will be able to buy detergents and canned goods that she is lacking in her store and with the earnings, she will buy a refrigerator for her house.

In this group: Victorina, Heladia, Salustia, Teresa, Justina, Marcela, Rocio, Olga, Veronica, Guillermina*
