Las Chulas Group's story

These enterprising women chose an unusual name, Las Chulas [The Lovely Ones]. They are six neighbors from the town of General Escobedo and they have their own businesses that allow them to have a better quality of life.

One of the women, Ana Lucía, is a wife and the mother of two children. About eight months ago she began collecting good-quality used clothing that she could sell as second-hand clothing. She started this business outside her house, but soon she decided to sell in the street markets. Once she saw that she knew how to do it, she got motivated to buy new clothing and sell merchandise of a better quality.

She is requesting a loan today to enrich the variety of her merchandise and, with that, increase her clientele and cover a greater market.

In this group: Ana Lucia, Ana Maria, Ma Valentina, Maria Esperanza, Maribel, Yasmin
