Cookies Group's story

This group is called "Cookies" and is located in the State of Mexico. It has 9 members including Dulce Maria D. D. who has two businesses. She sells tacos at weekends and, in the afternoons, she sells fries.

Dulce Maria has a 3 year-old daughter and she tells us that since she was very small she has had a lot of health problems. At her young age she has already had two operations on her heart and one on her intestines. This was what drove Dulce Maria to start her business since her husband's income didn't reach far enough to cover all the expenses. One of her greatest wishes is for her business to prosper because it is a support to her family. She will use the loan that she is granted to buy merchandise so that she can grow her business and know for certain that she will be able to face any problem.

In this group: Dulce Maria, Araceli, Mireya, Cecilia, Erica Sureina, Lucia*, Josefina, Isabel Jazmin, Maria Enedina
