Betty Boop Group's story

'Betty Boop' is a solidarity group and this is their first cycle. The group consists of seven close-knit members, all of whom are working in sales in order to provide for their families. Their meetings are held in the San Miguel district in the city of General Escobedo. They chose the name for their group because they like the character, and also feel they can identify with it.

María Dolores is a young, intelligent group member with a fighting spirit. She is 23 years old, has a 3-year-old son and lives with her partner in General Escobedo, Nuevo León. María Dolores has been selling jewelry and shoes from her house for around 2 years. She is asking for this loan so that she can stock more merchandise, increase sales, help her partner, and be able to give her son a better education as he is her inspiration to keep going.

One of María Dolores' goals is to continue her business selling jewelry and shoes, and gain more customers. In the future she hopes to set up a grocery business at home.

In this group: Erika, Juana, Leticia*, Maria Dolores, Maria Guadalupe, Olga , Alma Elizabeth
