La Garita Group's story

This group is called "La Garita" after the colony by the same name which most of the group members belong to. The group are located in the community of Atlacomulco in the state of Mexico. The group is made up of ten members and this is the first time they have requested a loan. Secundina G. R. is one of the group members. She is 35 years old and studied until Grade 6 in primary school. She attends to home duties, her business and her three sons. Secundina wakes up very early every day to get her children ready and take them to school, and later she goes to work.

Secundina started her business four years ago as she was looking for an alternative to support her family financially. She is applying for this loan to invest in products for her store as her customers are requesting cold meats.

Secundina feels very happy and satisfied with the possibility of expanding her business. She has said that she has plans to continue investing in her business to provide an education for her children.
