Luz Del Dia Group's story

Leo, as she is known, is 36, married, and has 5 children, of whom 3 are in school. She sells clothing for babies, children, women and men and has had her business for more than 15 years. She notes that she first began selling house to house in her neighborhood and then, a short time later, at a market nearby where she has a stall which she fought hard to obtain because there is a lot of red tape.

Leo says that she adds to her inventory in the city of México and in Moroleón, Guanajuato where they give her good prices. She notes hat she will use the loan to buy a greater variety of clothing and that the funding will help her because she will have a source of employment to support her children and she will be able to assist her husband with household expenses.

Leo’s goal is to increase her business more since she wants to have it very well stocked. She says that during this summer season she wants to buy cotton t-shirts, girl’s pants and boy’s bathing trunks.

Leo states that she is very grateful to FRAC because, thanks to the loans they have provided, her business has grown, little by little.

The other four members of the group are Audelia, Josefina, Candelaria and Yolanda. They will invest their loans in their businesses consisting of hosiery and haberdashery, a coffee bar, a grocery store, in napkins and cooking pots, in a combination of public service.

In this group: Audelia, Leonides, Josefina, Candelaria, Yolanda
