Nueva Estrella Group's story

The photo shows the group named “Nueva Estrella” (New Star), which is located in the State of Puebla in Mexico. There are eight members in the group. The photo was taken at the business of Sra. Auria R.J., one of the group members who has been managing a small grocery store out of her home for the past four years. She is known among the customers who buy from her. They say that they are satisfied because Auria is very helpful, offers good prices, and has the variety of products that they need, including fruits and vegetables. Auria says that her loan will be used to buy more merchandise and the profits will be invested in the expansion of her business. She is determined to build another room on her property that will later be used as the location for her business.


Auria is 58 years old, married, and has a fourth graD. education. She has three children, a son and two daughters.

In this group: Belinda, Cristina Patricia, Epifania Juana, Auria, Andrea Candelaria, Abigail, Cecilia, Alejandra
