La Flor De La Esperanza Group's story

This group is called “La Flor de la Esperanza” [The Flower of Hope] because the members believe this is going to be a good time to invest. It is located in the State of Mexico. The group is made up of nine members.

Señora Liliana is the president of the group. She is 25 years old, she completed secondary school and is a merchant. She earns a living with a business she started seven years ago selling groceries. She has two boys who are 7 and 5 years old.

She is requesting a loan to buy canned goods, soft drinks and cleaning products. Her business is steady and her customers know that they can find everything from handmade tortillas to dried fish and general groceries in her store.

Upon requesting this loan she feels enthusiastic. She wants this loan to invest in products and be able to offer her customers an extensive stock of foods. This way she will have better selling conditions and be able to help her husband with expenses. She feels proud to be able to contribute an income to her home and give her children a good education.

In this group: Andrea, Ma Cleofas, Natalia, Azucena, Sabina Fortunata, Liliana, Norma, Analy, Marina
