Luz Del Día Group's story

Audelia, 45, is married to Mario, a laborer. They have four children, only one of whom is still a dependent and attends high school. She says that there are four other members of the communal bank “Luz del Día” [Daylight] and that they chose this name because the loan is a light by which the women can slowly grow their businesses. She says that she sells embroidery and has a linen shop. She started the business to help her husband with her daughter's education. Her husband helped her build a little space for her shop. Audelia goes to Mexico City to stock the items she sells: needles, woven cloth, hoops, colored threads, worsted wool, hooks, and so forth.

Audelia is requesting a loan to stock her business and increase her earnings so she can help her husband a little more with the household expenses. The goal she has in mind is to add some stationery, since there isn't a store nearby that offers it. She thanks Vision Fund for the loan. The other members are Leónides, Josefina, Candelaria, and Yolanda. They will use the loan to invest in their businesses: a grocery store, a children's clothing shop, handicraft sales, and servicing small public buses.

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