Afrodita De Tolcayuca Group's story

This group is called Afrodita de Tolcayuca because the name Aphrodite represents the Goddess of beauty. The group is located in the state of Hidalgo in Mexico. The group is comprised of ten members. Xochitl is the president of the group. She is 35 years old, and she studied for a technical career in business. Xochitl sells clothes, and she has a fixed business in a very busy place in the municipality. Her business is a bazaar where she sells clothes and shoes. She has had the business for 14 years. Xochitl decided to sell clothes because it allows her to get extra income. This helps her pay the household expenses and helps with her children’s education. She has two children, ages 15 and 10. They are currently in the local school. The loan she is requesting is mainly to buy a display case where she will be able to offer her goods in a more visible way. This will help her increase her sales. Xochitl is known as a woman who struggles to have a better quality of life for her family. She is an enterprising and responsible woman with great charisma for her customers, neighbors, and family members. The photo was taken at Xochilt’s business. With the earnings that she gets she will continue investing in merchandise and paying for her children’s education.
