Girasol Group's story

This group is called "Girasol" [Sunflower] and is made up of three women, each of whom makes a living through her own business. They live in a small community called Ángel Albino Corzo.

Sahira was the group member who was interviewed. She is married to Sauce, with whom she has two daughters who are in college. She requested the loan to invest in the purchase of ingredients to make soft tacos. She has had this business for six months, and it is going well for her. She started the business to help her husband with their income, to give their family what they need most, and to get ahead together.

What she wants the most with her business is to be able to keep working and to obtain more income with the loan and to improve her taco business a little more.

The other members of the group are Magdai, who will invest in the purchase of merchandise to stock her grocery store, and Rosa Lidia, who will invest in groceries and her beauty salon.

In this group: Magdai, Rosa Lidia, Zahira
