This communal bank is called "Guadalupe SJ". It is located in the state of Puebla in México. The group is made up of 10 members. Mireya is the president of the group. She is 26 years old and has a technical degree. Her business is selling shoes. Mireya makes her living selling shoes from a catalog. She sells them to people she knows and through referrals. She started the business 1 year ago. Mireya is requesting the loan in order to purchase different brands of shoes so she can offer a greater variety, for all tastes and sizes. And she has some orders waiting for delivery. At the time she requested the loan, Mireya felt enthusiastic and a great desire to have a successful business. She is also hopeful that with this loan she will have better earnings and get more customers and a better quality of life. She uses her earnings to help her family with their household expenses. Mireya also wants to save a portion of her earnings for an emergency and to be well-prepared for any situation. Note: the woman who is hard to see in the photo is Yeni.
