Los Claveles De Jojutla Group's story

This group is called "Claveles de Jojutla" (the Jojutla Carnations) because that’s the name of the street where the members of the group live. They are located in the state of Morales in Mexico. The group is made up of 12 members and this is the first time they have applied for a loan.

Verónica García B. is the group’s treasurer. She is 44 years old and studied through primary school. She is involved in the sale of cosmetics, a business she began 12 years ago.

She is applying for the loan in order to enlarge her business and is planning on investing it in the purchase of more merchandise such as perfumes, creams, deodorants, and cosmetics in general. Her customers prefer her because she is an attentive, pleasant person and because she always delivers their orders on time.

She is very happy to be applying for the loan. She wants to use the loan to buy more merchandise for her business and, with the earnings she obtains, invest in the business in order to offer her products to more people. She also wants to improve her house in order to offer a more respectable life to her family.

In this group: Maria Del Carmen, Lorena, Sury Sarayd, Jacqueline Roxanee, Xochitl, Veronica Jhajaira, Veronica, Agustina, Maria De Lourdes, Alma Delia, Estela, Gabriela
