La Realeza Group's story

This group is called LA REALEZA (The Royal Family). It is located in the State of Puebla, in Mexico and has 9 members.

Anselma S.C. is 42 years old. She studied at elementary school level and has 2 children: 1 girl and 1 boy. Her business is making desserts and she started it 13 years ago. She is requesting this loan to buy raw materials so that she can fill her customers' orders. Her neighbors comment that they like buying Anselma's desserts, in particular her creme caramels and gelatin desserts which are delicious. Her customers are loyal to her business because she provides good customer service, cleanliness and good-tasting desserts.

Anselma makes her sales in her own community and in neighboring communities. As she requests this loan, she feels happy. She would like this loan so that she can buy what she needs to fill the orders that she has for 'Kings Day' (6th January). She would like to buy sugar, eggs and flavorings. She also hopes, with her profits, to be able to buy a three-wheeled vehicle so that she can get around her whole community and make her deliveries more quickly. She would like to provide her children with a decent life and education and to continue being the best example of how you need to work hard to get ahead in life.

In this group: Lilia, Yolanda, Maria Luisa, Luciana, Lucila, Anselma, Gabriela*, Maria Isabel, Sonia
