Maravillas Group's story

The name of this group is “Maravillas” (Miracles) in honor of the fact that all of the members are devotees of the Señor de las Maravillas in Mexico. The group is comprised of nine members, and this is the sixth time they are requesting a loan. Cecilia F. G. is president of the group. She is 40 years old, and she only has a middle school education. She is married, and she has three children (ages 18, 17, and 12). She sells Mexican snacks. Her colleagues know her to be a responsible person who has gotten ahead when facing adversity. She has been constantly progressing. She needs the loan to buy utensils for her business. Later on she plans to use her earnings to expand her business. She will set up a site to sell juice and fruit cocktails. Note that the woman that you cannot see well in the photo is Alejandra C..
