La Union Es La Fuerza Group's story

This group is called "Union is Strength," and it is located in the state of Puebla, in Mexico. The group consists of 9 members. Señora Maria G is one of the members of the group. She sells groceries, a business that she began 7 years ago. She is applying for the loan to purchase merchandise, so that she can offer a greater variety of products and better service. She wants to improve her work and not give her customers a bad impression. She is 29 years old. She went to secondary school up to the third year. She is married and has three sons. Her customers feel that she has good service, since her store is centrally located and they always find what they need. In addition, she has an accessible schedule, since she closes late and the other stores close early. At the time of applying for this loan, she felt happy because she was going to continue investing in her business and would be able to increase it to meet the expectations of her customers. Señora Maria hopes that her business will grow and continue to support her family economically. She wants her sons to have careers.

In this group: Maria De La Luz, Ana Laura, Silvia, Maria Guadalupe, Blanca Margarita, Sara, Haide, Alba, Andrea
