San Judas Group's story

Maria Flor de Luz G. F. lives in Tecpatan in the state of Chiapas in Mexico. She is married and she has a 2-year old daughter, Jais Arleth.

The loan will be invested in the maintenance of her machines, and to stock her small candy store. She has had the store for five years and she is happy to have it because thanks to this business she has been able to save money.

She started this type of work to contribute with her husband to the household income. They work together to obtain what they want to have.

She invests whatever she has in the maintenance of the video games. They are a source of income and it covers the smaller household expenses.

Her wish is to be able to provide for her family with this business which is the most important thing for her. She also wants to purchase materials to start building a house.

There are five members of the group and they are the following:

Maria F. J.: she will invest her loan in the purchase of ingredients to prepare foods.
