Nuevo Solecito Group's story

This group was named 'Nuevo Solecito' (New [Little] Sun) because the group members want to start this loan with a new sun. The group is located in the State of Mexico and has eight members.

Ana Luisa C. is the group's president. She is 24 years old, completed high school, and lives with her partner. She has run a business selling hand-made tortillas for two years. She is requesting this loan to improve her business premises as, right now, it is made from logs and plywood. At the time of requesting this loan, Ana Luisa is very excited because, thanks to this opportunity, she was able to start her business and it has gradually grown. Her goal is to own the best tortilla bakery in town. She will use the profits that she makes to save up so that she can improve her home and her family's quality of life.

In this group: Ana Maria, Hilaria, Simona, Alicia, Ana Luisa, Emilia, Felipa, Hilda
