Las Catalinas Group's story

This group is called "Las Catalinas" and is located in the Morelos state, in Mexico. The group is made up of 9 members, and this is the first time that they are requesting a loan. Martha is a member of the group. She is married, 42, and a businesswoman. She has a total of 4 children; 3 girls and one boy. She sells clothing, a business that she started 25 years ago. She has her own storefront where she displays her merchandise, and she is able to offer other articles seasonally. She is requesting a loan for the purchase of merchandise, since the season for buying new school uniforms is approaching; a new school year is about to begin. She wants to purchase clothing such as socks, shirts and accessories which the students use for the return to school. Her customers prefer her business because she has a large variety of designs. With her income, she wants to save up for her children's education, and to help out with the household costs.
