Progresistas Group's story

"Las Mujeres Progresistas" (The Progressive Women) is a supportive group in the municipality of García, Nuevo León. They are a group of nine enterprising women who are completing their third cycle with the institution problem-free. Maricela Flores is one of the women in the group. She is married and is 38 years old. Together with her husband, she has 3 children. The oldest, Luis, is 19 years old and employed. The younger ones, 14 year old Rosa and 7 year old Juan are in school. A few years ago, Maricela realized that she needed to generate an income to help her husband with the household expenses. And so 2 years ago she started a business selling supplements to her neighbors, family and friends. Maricela requested the loan to purchase more products, as some of her customers have already placed orders and are waiting for them to be delivered. Maricela hopes to keep growing her business and to earn more customers to be able to give her children the best possible future
