Las Triunfadoras De Zoquitlan Group's story

This photo was taken in the house of Reyna L., a member of the 'Las Triunfadoras' group (The Triumphant Ones) in Zoquitlán, which is located in the state of VeraC. in Mexico. Reyna has worked selling refreshments for the last seven years. She is requesting a loan to purchase more merchandise to increase her business, as well as selling tortillas and corn leaves for tamales. Her fellow group members, neighbours and customers know her to be a hard working and responsible person. She feels satisfied that this loan will increase her sales and her client base.

Reyna is 51 years of age and has completed three years of primary schooling. She is a widow and has five children: three girls and two boys. She hopes to be able to purchase seeds to grow corn and continue selling her tortillas and corn leaves so that she can help her family and improve their quality of life.

María Esther M. is the president of the group. She is 52 years of age and has received a basic education. She is a widow and has three children: three girls and one boy. She has been selling seeds and tamales for ten years. She is requesting a loan to purchase pigs to fatten up and resell, as well as investing in her seeds and tamale business.
