La Virgen De Guadalupe Group's story

This group, called The Virgin of Guadalupe, is located in the state of Mexico. The clients decided to use this name in honor of the patron saint of the town.

Ms. Matilde M., a member of this group, has worked selling bread for more than five years. She is 36 years old and married to Mr. Margarito M.. With this loan she wants to invest in supplies and continue working at the side of her husband and with him be devoted to their children since the youngest is just three years old. Doña Matilde hopes they grow up to be successful men and that one day they can have a better quality of life. Even though she has just a primary education, she would like to have a son with a profession.

In this same group is Ms. Margarita F. González who is 28 years old, married, and has four children. She tells us that after studying through secondary school she did not have the opportunity to continue her studies because of a lack of economic means and so she saw the need to work. She and her husband decided to start a store in their community and with that business still have time for the care of their children. With this loan they want to invest in their business and improve their quality of life.

In this group: Maria Dolores, Maricela, Margarita, Matilde, Maria Del Carmen, Ma De Lourdes, Maria Guadalupe, Meribeth, Erica
