Las Nochebuenas Group's story

This group is called “Las Nochebuenas” (The Poinsettias) and is located in the State of Mexico. Their community is known for its fruit trees, its large green fields, and the hardworking and enterprising people. Nine members make up this group.

Sra. Beatriz is one of the group’s members. She started her business one year ago and fortunately she has done very well. Beatriz sells stationery and backpacks. She is requesting a loan to restock her business by purchasing backpacks and stationery items so that she will have a wide variety of products to offer to her customers. Since all of the classes are starting again, Beatriz needs more money to invest so that she can satisfy the needs of her customers.

She is 27 years old and has a high school education. Beatriz is married and has three children (ages 7, 6, and 4). She wants to provide her children an education and continue her work so that they can have a better quality of life. In addition, she wants to help her husband with the household expenses.
