Coquetas Group's story

This group is called "Las Coquetas" (The Flirts) and is located in Guerrero, in the state of Mexico. These clients decided to give their group this name because they are all very cheerful women. The group has nine members, including María Luisa B. M. who is the group's treasurer.

María is 33 years old, married, and has 5 children. She tells us that it has been very difficult to get her children ahead in life because the wage that her husband earns as a construction worker doesn't cover all their household expenses. Sometimes he has no work which has made it difficult to achieve financial stability since sources of work are very scarce in their town. For this reason, María decided to set up a small store in her home in order to support her husband with their expenses. She will invest her loan in buying more merchandise. Her wish is for her children to continue in their studies and for them to become good professionals some day. This was something that she could not achieve for herself but an opportunity that she would really like to offer her children.

In this group: Maria Luisa, Leticia, Maricela, Maria Griselda, Ma Cristina, Margarita, Maria, Bonifacia, Lina
