Rositas Del Ocho Group's story

This group is called "Rositas del Ocho" a name chosen because it reflects the fact that the members live in the community’s Ocho neighborhood and what they like best are roses. It is located in the State of México. The community is noted for a lagoon located 100 meters from the town. Most of the residents go there to relax. The group has 10 members and this is the third time it’s requested a loan.

One of the group members is Laura. She is 31 years old and only finished elementary school. She has three children. She’s a housewife but also a merchant at the same time. She comments that her business started with much love since it’s the tool she uses to provide her children with a better life.

Laura sells clothes via catalogue. She sells her items to residents in her community. She’s been in business for 15 years. Her dedication to her business has allowed her to establish a regular customer base that is faithful to her thanks to the good service and kind treatment.

The loan will help her invest in more clothes. She dreams with some day having an establishment where she can display all her products and counsel people who would like to start their own business.

In this group: Carmela, Elizabeth, Epifania, Eldida, Laura, Maria, Maria Guadalupe, Maria Del Pilar, Maribel, Carmen
