Luz 2 Group's story

This group is called “Luz II” (Light II) because the members believe that light is always in their hearts. They meet in Hidalgo, Mexico. There are nine members and this is the fourth time they have applied for a loan.

Sra. Alfonsa is a member of the group. She is 57 years old, has an elementary school education, and works as a cook. Alfonsa has managed a diner for three years and her experience in the kitchen has now brought out the best in her cooking. Her customers say that Doña Alfonsa is an excellent cook because her recipes are traditional and have great flavor. She was very pleased at the time she requested her loan. Alfonsa wants to use the funds to buy supplies and ingredients such as vegetables, spices, meats, gas, and other items. She also hopes to increase her sales so that she can buy more tables to expand her business. With the profits she earns, Alfonsa will be able to continue investing in supplies, expand her business, and support her family with the household expenses.

In this group: Luz Adriana, Maria Tonantzin, Alfonsa, Ana Jhoana, Elsa, Juana Iris, Martha Curiel, Ma Antonia, Ana Cristina*
