Ciudad Real (Flat) Group's story

This group is called "Ciudad Real" and is made of three people. They live in a community called Llano Grande where they celebrate the feast day of the most holy Saint Philip. Rosa is in a civil union with José with whom she has had five children, four of which are still under her care. She is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of ingredients such as flour, oil, eggs, cheese, Royal [a brand of baking powder], among others, to make bread. She has been making bread for one year and she says that she has done well with it so far. Rosa began this business in order to help cover the household expenses and to provide her small family with necessities. Her goal is to continue working so that with time she can have a larger bakery where she can work more days per week. The other members of the group include Miguel who will invest in the purchase and sale of pigs, which he butchers and sells by the kilogram, and María Graciela who will invest in the purchase of pigs to sell by the kilogram.

In this group: Miguel, María Graciela, Rosa
