Trebol De La Suerte Group's story

The name of this group is “Trébol de la Suerte" (Lucky Clover). The group is from the Mexican state of Morelos, a place renowned for the mild climate characterizing the most part of the year, and for its farms, once important businesses in colonization times, that were and still are engaged in growing sugar cane, the state’s main economic activity to today. The group is composed of 8 people, and it is the fourth time they are requesting a loan. Soccorro is a member of the group: she is 58, she is a retailer, she completed the 6th grade, and she has 8 children, 5 daughters and 3 sons. She engages in selling fruits and vegetables, an activity she started 2 years ago, and she is requesting a loan to buy courgettes, string beans, chili peppers and tomatoes. Her customers choose her because they always find what they are looking for. She is happy about asking for a loan because she will thus have a wider variety of products. Her future incomes will be used to repair her house in order to offer better living conditions to her children.

In this group: Ana Laura, Clara, Ever, Lizzet, Maely, Socorro, Felicitas, Maria Del Jazmin
