Chicas Dulces Group's story

This group is called 'Chicas Dulces' (Sweet Girls) and is located in the State of Puebla. The group has nine members and this is the fifth time that they have requested a loan.

Martha is the group's president. She has a business selling underwear which she started three years ago. She is requesting this loan to buy underwear. Martha is 44 years old and studied up to the fourth year of elementary school. She has a common-law marriage and three children. At the time of requesting this loan, she feels excited by the opportunity that she is being given to invest in her business and have more merchandise to sell. She would like this loan to buy merchandise that she has already promised to customers. She thereby hopes to gain more customers and provide her family with a better quality of life. She would also like to save part of her profits so that she can provide for her children's education since her biggest dream is to see her children gain professional degrees.

In this group: Ma Guadalupe, Maria Antonia, Martha, Maria Isabel, Sandra, Isabel, Ana Maria, Cecilia, Iosmara
