Grupo Lucero Group's story

This group is called "Grupo Lucero" ["Bright Star Group"] and is located in the town of Santa María Citendeje. This is an area with a lot of vegetation. The group members are very hard-working and optimistic. They gave their group this name because they love stars, especially bright stars, and think that they are very beautiful.The group is made up of four very enthusiastic women whose businesses are the following:
1. Dinora S., (who will buy oranges, green tomatoes, red tomatoes, onion, candy etc. for sale, as well as cosmetics for sale),
2. Carmen Leticia X., (who will buy pop, eggs, dairy products, candy, oil, milk, etc. for sale),
3. Teresa T., (who will buy sheets, bedspreads, shoes, cosmetics, lipsticks, mascara, and perfume for sale), and
4. Rosaura S., (who will buy perfume, lipstick, shadows, liner, bras, underwear, shoes, etc. for sale).
Dinora is the group representative. She is 32 and has been married for 8 years. She and her husband have two children, ages 5 and 7. Dinora is requesting this loan to invest in her small grocery store and cosmetics sales business. She has five years' experience in this work and has invested a large part of her time in them. These businesses have been a great economic help for her family. She has not had any major problems stopping her from doing her work. She started this business on her own because she wanted to help her husband, a taxi driver, with the household costs. A loan will help her to keep expanding her business.

In this group: Dinora, Carmen Leticia, Teresa, Rosaura
