Duo Santa Teresita Group's story

'Santa Teresita' group

This group has two members. María Marta sells essential household products and, a short while ago, she managed to buy a mill for grinding 'nixtamal' (cooked corn used in making tortillas). Her business is doing very well as she serves a number of people during the day. She would like to take advantage of this opportunity and invest further in her grocery store business as the people who come to use her mill also buy household products while they are there. Alongside María Marta lives Justa who has been selling tortillas for several years. Owing to the increase in the price of corn, she needs capital so that she can buy in larger quantities and save. According to her customers' needs, she also sells corn which makes her an additional income to that which she makes selling her tortillas. Both ladies would like to continue working and expanding their businesses. They are happy to have this opportunity to obtain capital with which they can achieve their goals.

In this group: Maria Marta, Justa
