Xalpatlahuac Group's story

Alfreda, 50, is a widower and has 2 children. Her son, Roman, is studying a master’s in dance and Alexis is still in high school. Alfreda sells fish and vegetables. She’s been in this line of work for 6 years and says that it is going well. She is now selling fish to her neighbors and in the neighboring town. She’ll be investing her loan in more fish as she’d like to increase sales. She hopes it will go well as the loan will be of great help to stock up her business.
