La Luna 2 Group's story

This group is called "La Luna 2" ("The Moon 2"), because they are located on a hillside and from there you can clearly see the moon which so enchants them. Señora Veronica is the treasurer of the group. She is 33 years old and has studied up to the sixth year of primary school. She works in creating craftwork such as embroidered tablecloths and napkins, a business which she started 5 years ago. She has 2 children, one aged 15 and one aged 13.

She is requesting the loan to reinvest in her business, because they are approaching the time of the village festival which is when she sells most of her creations. At the time of applying for this loan she feels enthusiastic, and that she will be able to invest in fabrics, yarns, needles, hooks and patterns for the images she features on her tablecloths. With this plan she will make plenty of articles to sell at the festival; with the profits obtained she wants to make her business bigger and she will use part of these profits for the education of her children.

In this group: Tania, Leticia, Marcelina, Veronica, Rosalba, Juana, Juana Epigmenia, Araceli, Lourdes
