A loan of $1,200 helped a member to sell fruit and vegetables.


Magno Group's story

Guadalupe is a very hardworking woman who wants to get ahead. She is 34 years old, married and has 3 children who depend on her. She remarks that 2 years ago she started a business selling fruit and vegetables in season in a small town near her community. She says she learned the business to help her husband with the household expenses because they couldn't make ends meet. She says that she goes to the distribution center every day to stock up on fruit and vegetables and in avocado season she cuts them from the trees she has at her house. Lupita, as she is affectionately called, is asking for a loan to keep investing in her business. She sells door to door and in the city market. She sells avocados, chiles, apples, nopales, swiss chard, guayabas, peaches, grapes, etc. She says “thanks to everyone who helped through through the loans because they help us to give our children a better quality of life."

The other three members of the group are named María de Jesús, Silvia and Roldan. They will invest their loans in buying plastic kitchen products via catalog and pigs to raise and sell as well as in fruit and vegetables to sell.

In this group: Guadalupe, Maria De Jesus, Silvia, Roldan Oswaldo
