Las Estrellas De Tlaltepango Group's story

This group’s name is “Las Estrellas de Tlaltepango” (Stars of Tlaltepango). The name was chosen because that’s the name of the neighborhood they meet in and they consider themselves stars. The group is located in Puebla, México and it has 10 members. This is their first loan request.
Jazmín is group Treasurer. She is 19 years old and only went to elementary school. She sells chickens she raised. She is known by her fellow members for being a responsible person who has managed to get ahead. She’s from this community and has been making progress for the last three years. She wants the loan to invest in her chicken raising business.

She will use the loan to buy feed and cleaning supplies to use in the care and feeding of her fowl. With profits she will continue investing in her business because the fowl require time for subsequent sale. She also wants to continue helping her family with expenses and offering them a better quality of life.

In this group: Maria Isabel, Cristina, Lucia, Rosa*, Raquel, Rosita Pilar, Jazmin, Maricela, Pamela, Cristina
