Sobresalientes Group's story

This group is called "Sobresalientes" (Outstanding). They chose the name because when the group was being formed they all felt very happy to be receiving this loan. The group is located in the State of Hidalgo and has 9 members.

Mrs Isabel Eugenia F. A. is the group's president. She is 47 years old and a single mother. She studied up to high school level and has a 14 year-old son. Eugenia's business is selling groceries, fruit and vegetables. She has been in her business for 2 years and is requesting this loan so that she can stock her business and have a greater variety of products available for her customers. In this way she will increase her sales.

Eugenia's customers tell us that she is an excellent saleswoman since she visits the homes of her neighbors and acquaintances. She is a hard-working, kind woman of excellent character and she really enjoys her work. At the time of requesting this loan, Eugenia feels very happy and content to be receiving this opportunity. She hopes that the loan will help her to increase her sales, make progress in her business and cover her family's needs so that they can live peacefully without her having to go out to work and neglect her children.
