Corregidora I Group's story

This group is called Corregidora 1 because its street has the same name, after an important figure in Mexico's Independence. They identify with him because of his constant struggle and tenacity. The group is in the city of Pachua, in Hidalgo state, Mexico. The group is made up of 8 members.
Mrs Juana D. is the group president. She is 46, and studied up to the third grade of secondary school. She is a merchant and has one daughter. She sells juices from different fruits in her home. Juanita is known by her customers for her good service and kindness; they know her as an excellent person.

She started this business one year ago, and her customers tell us that she prepares her juices and breakfasts with a lot of hygiene, and that thanks to her kindness she has more customers every day. She is requesting this loan to acquire basic material to start selling food and Mexican dishes. In the near future she wants to remodel her home in order to increase her sales and thus be able to offer her daughter and husband a better quality of life. Her customers find out about her food when they pass by her house, as she puts it on display and puts up signs. Her food is set apart by its quality, and her location is very comfortable. The street on which it is located is very well-trafficked.
