This group is called "Iyali". It is located in Puebla, Mexico. There are 10 members of the group. Guadalupe is the president of the group. She is 38 years old and she studied until the 6th grade of primary school. She works selling shoes, and she began doing this 15 years ago. She is requesting the loan to buy more pairs of shoes. When applying for this loan, she is excited and eager to excel. She also hopes to increase her income with this loan and to get more clients so that she can grow her business and gain a better quality of life. Reyna is another member of the group. She is 42 years old and studied up to secondary school. She is married and her children are already married. She has a store and she started her business 10 years ago because, at this time, she had economic problems as her husband was out of work so she went looking for opportunities and started her store. Today the store is very well known in the community. She is requesting the loan to buy more merchandise. When applying for this loan she feels excited as she will be able to buy more goods with the loan and will always have the things her clients are looking for, like sugar, oil, and sodas. She also hopes that, with the help of this loan, she will have a better quality of life for herself and for her family.
