Esmeraldas De San Francisco Group's story

This group is called “Esmeraldas D. San Francisco” (San Francisco Emeralds). The group chose this name because it’s pretty and so that it will remain strong with help from all the members. The group is located in the State of México. The town is noted for its great responsibility and the kindness of its people. Andrea, 41, is one of the group members. She sells napkins. She is grateful to all her customers because thanks to them she can get ahead although she also considers that what she does is really good. This is her third loan request. Andrea wants this loan to buy fabric and thread to make more embroidered napkins because she feels that by increasing she is encouraged so that her people will be happy. For the moment she wants to continue with stability in her business and hopes to continue earning profits to obtain more opportunities for work and offer her family a better quality of life and economic support so that they will lack nothing.

In this group: Reyna, Antonia, Andrea, Magdalena, Elizabeth, Maria Teresa, Natividad, Luisa, Estefana
