Las Velocez Group's story

The group called "Las Velocez" is located in the state of Mexico. There are 11 members: among them is Maria Isabel A., who is 24 years old. She has a child who is a year and 8 months old. Maria has been selling shoes for 2 years. She works to support her child, since her husband's earnings are not enough for them. She started selling shoes with her family, and later, as she sold a lot, she started to sell to neighbors and in the surrounding neighborhoods. With her loan she plans to buy many catalogs of different brands. Her desire is to make her business grow, and in this way be able to give a good education to her child. She hopes to see her business grow larger each day.
