Comerciantes Group's story

Comerciantes [Merchants] is a support group of 6 enterprising women. They are in their second cycle right now with this institution and they chose that name because they are all women who are merchants.

María is one of the members of the group. She is 55 years old and married. She has 4 children, all of them young and hardworking. In fact, 2 of them work with her. More than 10 years ago, Maria, with her family, decided to open a metalworks business. It has grown little by little and has a good reputation among the neighborhood residents. María is asking for this loan because she hopes to create a collection of samples of doors and handrails to attract more customers. This way, they will be able to see the samples from outside of her business. María dreams of one day being able to enlarge her workshop even more and be able to have more customers and more income.

In this group: Aurora , Ma Guadalupe, Maria , Maria De La Luz, Maria Elena, Rocio Guadalupe
