Iturbide Group's story

This group is called IturbiD., because that is the name of the street where the group meets. It is located in the state of Morelos in México. The group has nine members and this is the second time they are requesting a loan.

María is the treasurer of the group. She is 48 years old, went to school until the 5th year of primary school, lives in a common-law marriage, and has three children (two sons and a daughter). She works selling homemaD. food, a business she started 22 years ago.

She is asking for this loan to expand her business. She wants to purchase more merchandise such as goods and supplies, sodas, and juices. Her customers prefer her because her food has good flavor. She feels happy to apply for this loan. With the income she earns, she hopes to support her daughter who is finishing school so that she can continue studying and have a better life.
