Iyali Group's story

This group is called "Iyali" and it is located in the State of Puebla, Mexico. The group has ten members. Maria de los Angeles is the group's president. She is 31 years old and studied up to the third year of high school. She has three children and she sells bread for a living. She started this business four years ago as her husband had a serious accident which left him paralyzed. She started the business so that she could support her family. Maria believes that, in spite of everything, she can get ahead in life with the help of her family. She is requesting this loan to buy 'pan de dulce' (sweet bread). Her customers are people from her community who prefer to buy from her because of her good customer service and the quality of her bread. At the time of requesting this loan, she feels excited and has a great desire to do well. She hopes that she will be able to make better profits and thereby be able to enjoy a better quality of life together with her family.
