El Jardin De Buenavista Group's story

This group is called “El Jardín de Buenavista” (Buenavista Garden) because the ladies all love plants. Besides, across from where they meet there’s a kindergarten (jardín de niños). It is located in the State of Morelos which is a place whose inhabitants very much want to get ahead and who work very hard every day to get ahead and provide better lives for their children.

The group has 11 members and this is the second loan request. María, 47, is one of the members. She only went to elementary school. She’s married and has been raising sheep for the last 10 years. She’s asking for the loan to buy sheep, feed and vitamins for their growth. She mostly sells her products to local neighbors and to people who make barbeque. Her customers comment that they like to buy from her because the feed she gives them guarantees good quality meat. Profits she earns will be used to reinvest so that her business will grow and she can offer her children a better quality of life and schooling for their future.

In this group: Maricela, Graciela, Antonia, Maria Leticia, Margarita, Leonila, Agustina, Silvia, Gregoria, Maricruz Janet*, Ines
