Las Chicas De Genaro 3 Group's story

"Las Chicas de Genaro 3" is a solidarity group that is in its first loan cycle with Credituyo. Most of these women came from another group, also called "Las Chicas de Genaro". They decided to separate and form a new group because the other group was too large. All of the women in this group have known each other for more than 20 years. They live in a small subdivision where most of the people know one another.

Maria de la Luz is one of the members of this group. She has four children (ages 18, 16, 12, and 10). Her oldest son works as a machine operator while her 16-year-old daughter works in a fast food restaurant. Her two youngest children are studying. Maria has been selling new clothing for two years. She sells clothes to the neighbors in her subdivision. This loan will help her to restock with clothes that she can resell. In the future, she wants to begin diversifying her income by opening a snack shop in her house. This will generate extra income so that she can provide her children with better opportunities in the future.

In this group: Andre Susana, Cristina Sarahi, Deyanira, Josefina, Maria De La Luz, Rosalia
