Unidad Las Cañas Group's story

This group is called "Unidad las Cañas" because that’s the name of the housing unit this group meets in. It’s located in the state of Morelos, México. The group has nine members and this is the 8th time they’ve requested a loan.

Guadalupe is one of the group members. She is 34 years old and completed secondary school. She lives in a free union and sells shoes via catalogue, a business she started six years ago and in which she’s done very well; she has many pending orders.

She is asking for this loan to buy more merchandise (sandals, slippers, tennis shoes, etc). Her customers prefer her because she treats them very well and because she sells high quality shoes for very good prices.

At the moment of requesting the loan she feels very happy for the opportunity to continue growing in her business. She wants the loan to buy more shoes to fill her pending orders. She wants to use profits obtained from the sales to buy a table for her home and to contribute to her household’s economy.

In this group: Diana Vianey, Gloria, Elvira, Ma Guadalupe, Silvia, Sherliey, Maria Elena, Norma Angelica, Marina
