Lago Ness Group's story

This group is called “Lago Ness” (Loch Ness) after the lake in the Scottish highlands of the United Kingdom. The story is that there is evidence of a monster (Nessie) that frequently appears to people in the area. Inspired by this, the group aspires to be innovative in their way of working. Each day they strive to be creative so that they can reach the goals of all the members.

The group is located in the state of PuebL. in Mexico and is maD. up of 11 members. Señora Maria is the president of the group. She completed primary school, is a housewife, and has a small stationary and dry goods shop. She wants the loan in order to invest in inventory for her business. She wants to sell a greater variety of products because this will allow her to obtain better wholesale prices.

Maria is happy with the income from her business. With the earnings she obtains she wants to save in order to purchase a computer for her children’s school. Two people who aren’t seen well in the photo are Eufemia and Patricia.
