A loan of $3,025 helped a member to buy beauty products for her business.


Blanco Y Negro Group's story

This group is called "Blanco y Negro" (Black and White) and is located in the State of Mexico. Sandra is a member of the group and is originally from this community. She has three children and tells us that she has been selling beauty products for five years. She started her business indirectly, helping another lady. Gradually, she realized that it was a good business and chose to start her own business. She is taking courses on selling this type of product so that she can strengthen her business and increase her sales. Over time, she has managed to increase her sales and, through her business, has managed to improve her own quality of life and that of her family.

Sandra will use her loan to buy more beauty products since she has a lot of orders. She will save some of her profits to pay for her children's education and to continue investing in her business. Her dream is to be a successful woman and, some day, to be able to see her children become professionals.

In this group: Sandra, Maria Guadalupe, Delfina, Susana, Maria Raquel, Sandra, Elizabeth*, Elvia, Mayra, Rosa Isela, Laura Patricia
