Chicas Trabajadoras Group's story

“Chicas Trabajadoras” (Hard-Working Girls) is a group of seven people who live in a neighborhood in the city of Monterrey. They have been friends for many years, so they know each other very well. They say that they are very hard-working women (as their name says) in addition to the huge amount of trust that exists between them.

Graciela is one of them. She is a very serious and responsible woman. She has a small used tool stand that she and her husband started with little merchandise. In time their business has been gradually growing.

She now has a greater variety of products, and with help from the loan she will be able to buy more used tools. She will also invest in other products like comforters to sell at her house.

Her dream is to continue growing with her business in order to cover the household expenses and to be able to live more comfortably.

In this group: Ana Luisa, Blanca Aracely, Carmen Margarita, Graciela, Judith*, Maria Elena, Yajaira Lizeth
