Estrellas Sc Group's story

This group is called “Estrellas SC” (Stars SC) because the members want to become successful individuals. The group is located in Puebla, Mexico, and consists of nine members.

Marisela A.M. is the president of the group. She is 35 years old, has a third grade education, and earns her living by making construction materials. Marisela has three children, two daughters and a son. She has a business making blocks that she started nine years ago. Marisela is requesting a loan to buy cement and “cachuatillo” (red volcanic rock). Her customers are satisfied with the punctuality with which she delivers her orders as well as the quality of her products. Upon requesting her loan, Marisela felt enthusiastic and happy to be accessing these funds because she would be able to finish the bedroom for her children and build up a good inheritance for them.

In this group: Elizabeth Guadalupe, Marisela, Nelly, Maria De Los Angeles, Guadalupe, Mariel, Manuela, Yuliana, Karina*
