Americanistas Group's story

This group is called the Americanistas because most of the members are fans of the soccer team, America. The group is made up of 9 people who work every day to support their families. Lourdes (clothing sales), Hortencia (makes embroidered bags), Hilaria and Guillermo (grocery sales), Sofia (catalog sales), Reyna and Juana (shoes sales), Adela (Herbalife sales), and Juan (a silkscreen shop).

Hilaria is one of the members of this group. She is married to Navor and she has a little daughter. She is requesting the loan because she wants to start a business of selling groceries in her home since there is no other where she lives, She thought it would be a good option so she could have another source of income for her family. She will use the loan to buy: soap, oil, toilet paper, detergent, sugar and more.
Hilaria decided to begin this business because her husband doesn’t earn enough to cover the expenses and because her little daughter needs many things and she isn’t able to buy all of them.
Hilaria says that before she was married, she made bread but she stopped once she met her husband.
Her goal is to have her own house since now she lives with her mother-in-law and she plans to succeed with effort and dedication.
She is very happy with the loan offered and she appreciates the support.

In this group: Lourdes, Hortencia, Hilaria, Sofia Elena, Reyna Felisa, Adela, Juana, Juan Pedro, Gullermo
