Las Morenas Group's story

Las Morenas is a supportive loan group formed by six members that is in its third cycle. The group is called such because the person who organized it is affectionately called "La Morenita" ("brunette").

Hilda is one of the members of the group. She is 35 years old and married with two children. During the day she works at her grocery store. For six months now she has done this to help her husband with expenses and provide a better education for her children. Moreover, she also works on weekends selling food in her home.

Hilda would like a loan in order to add a new branch to her grocery store- selling stationary and school supplies- as her business is located next to a school.

In the long-term, Hilda would like her business to grow and to have bigger premises in order to attract more customers.

In this group: Alma Delia, Hilda Aurelia, Julia Patricia, Migdian Aracely, Perla Cecilia, Xochitl
