Donne Group's story

The group is called “Donne” and is located in the State of México. It has 11 members; among them is María, 38. She is a single mother of two children, a 12-year-old and a 1-year-old. She tells us that she’s been working for a little more than a year in her grocery store. She started it because she did not have enough money to cover family expenses. She started the business with very little stock merchandise but with great hopes. Gradually she started having more customers and now she has to invest in more merchandise to meet customer demand. Her wish is to better establish her store.

She will use the loan she gets to buy soft drinks, canned goods and items for the home. María puts a lot of effort into her work; her greatest motivators are her children. Her family has always supported her efforts and she wants to proviD. her children with careers so that they’ll have better quality of life.
