Pimpoyas Group's story

This group is called Las Pimpoyas. They chose this name in honor of feminine beauty, which is considered to be the natural essence of life. This municipality belongs to the state of Hidalgo in Mexico.

The group is comprised of ten members. Yanet Micaela S. is the president of the group. She is 35, married, and studied for a degree in administration. She is a merchant, and she has two children, a ten year old girl and a seven year old boy. She sells seasonal handicrafts, which she started three years ago. She is requesting the loan to get raw material. Then she will be able to fill her orders by anticipating the season. That way she will be able to offer better service. She is so widely recommended by her customers that they request her handicraft services in their homes. She does things like table arrangements and seasonal gifts.

Yanet manages a very good level of sales. She feels very satisfied and happy upon requesting this loan. It gives her the opportunity to make her business grow. Also, she hopes to give her children a better quality of life and a good education in addition to growing as a woman and a mother.
