La Presa De Enchisi Group's story

This group is called “La Presa de Enchisi” (Enchisi Dam) because there is a dam in the community that is larger in the rainy season; it’s located in the State of México. It is a place of hard working people dedicated to farming different plants. The group has 10 members and this is the first time they’ve asked for a loan.

Esther is the group President. She’s married and is 34 years old; she has six children. She grows cactus paddles to sell, a business she started several years ago. She asked for a loan to buy plastic and to weld the structure of her nursery so that her product won’t be damaged. She sells her product to her neighbors because there are people who don’t grow it and buy it from her at wholesale. They prefer hers because it’s good quality and because of the dedication she puts into her work with her husband and children who are the main motivators for her daily work because she wants her children to become great professionals.

In this group: Esther, Margarita, Angelica, Alicia, Marisela, Teresa, Maria De Lourdes, Angelina*, Arcelia, Josefina
