Los Angeles Caidos Group's story

This picture shows the group called "Los Angeles Caidos," located in the state of Puebla, Mexico. This group is comprised of 9 members. Mrs. Flora R. V. is one of the members, she 69 years old and studied through the fourth graD.. She is married and has six children: 3 men and 3 woman. She is the owner of a small grocery store and says that even though it's small she has been able to keep it well stocked so her customers don't go elsewhere. She has had this business for several years and is happy that her customers prefer it. Mrs. Flora is very nice and gives good prices. She also sells food to workers who work in the maquiladora (factory) near her home. She says this business has provided good returns. Today, she is happy, satisfied, and grateful for the good service and loans authorized because they are helping her increase her business. She says this loan is destined for the purchase of merchandise to stock her store. She will buy plates and bases for her guests with the earnings. On the other hand, she plans to help fix up some of her rooms in her house since they are already doing roofs with laminated asbestos. She is sure that with the help of the loan, she will achieve her goal in the future.

In this group: Flora Rosa, Maria Josefina Enriqueta, Robertina Felipa, Juan Jose Luis, Angelina, Catalina Leonila, Adriana, Aurelia Angela, Maria Lorena
