Mujeres De Valor Group's story

The group is named “Mujeres de Valor” (Women of Valor) because the members have always been known for not fearing anything. They live in the State of Mexico and this is the seventh time they have requested a loan. This is a marvelous group since the members have always supported one another.

Sra. Carmen is one of the members who has a great deal of business experience. She is 63 years old and the mother of five children. Carmen says that she has always lived a nice life, but things get a little more complicated when it comes to the finances. Her husband has always worked on a farm, so they depend solely on the crops he produces. On a few occasions, they have had barely enough to eat so she decided to help her husband with supporting their children by contributing toward the household income.

Carmen is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise for her grocery store so that she can offer her customers more of the products that they need. She has been in business for 20 years and is very pleased. In addition to managing her business, she strives to provide for the education of her children so that they can achieve their dreams.

The woman in the photo who cannot be seen clearly is Sra. Leticia.
