Pecositas Group's story

This group is called "Pecositas". Maria Trinidad G. is a member of the group. She is 29 years old and from the State of Morelos in Mexico. She lives with her partner, Felipe Castaño.

Maria has been selling sandals for 8 years. She makes the sandals with her dad and, in this way, helps to improve her family's quality of life. Maria is very happy that she has this opportunity to receive a loan as it will allow her to grow her business. She is happy to have the support of people who trust in her.

Maria will invest her loan in buying raw materials for making her sandals. In the future, she would like to set up a sales location in her district so that she can sell her sandals as, at the moment, she sells them in street markets. Maria has two sons, Elias and Kaleb, who are her pride and joy. She would like to provide them with a better quality of life and a better future.

In this group: Maria Trinidad, Albertina, Armandina, Rebeca, Liliana Berenice, Amalia, Apolonia, Cristina
