Quetzalcoatl X Group's story

This group is called "Quetzalcoatl X," because this is name of the place where they live. They are located in the state of Puebla, Mexico. The group has 12 members and this is the first time that they have requested a loan. Patricia is a member of the group . She has a business selling traditional Mexican snacks (tostadas, chalupas, memelitas (a corn dough tart), and grilled corn.) She is 36 years old, married, and has two children who are in elementary school. She is a native of her community, and needs a loan to invest in supplies such as corn, tostadas, cream, mayonnaise, and vegetables at wholesale. In this way she can increase her earnings. With the earnings she gets, she will continue to invest in her business and in this way support her family and the household expenses so that she can provide them with a better quality of life.
