A loan of $5,325 helped a member to buy a gas cylinder.


Luna Turquesa Group's story

Cristina is 34 years old and has four sons, aged 15, 13, 9, and 6. She is married, and her husband works in a factory. She is one of the members of Luna Turquesa Group. She started her business selling jewelry and used shoes. The loans she took out helped her improve her business: firstly, she bought a jukebox to rent it out, then she bought ingredients to start preparing and selling Mexican food, and lastly she bought a gas cylinder and other things she needed for her business. Her business is working well today, with the help of her husband and sons. She knows that she is a long way away from having a restaurant, but she hopes all her efforts will help her achieve this dream of hers. Luna Turquesa Group is already in its sixth cycle with the field partner. It is a very good and hardworking group; all its members know and support each other very well.

In this group: Claudia Lizzeth, Cristina Lizeth , Margarita, Maria Del Socorro *, Nancy Irasema, Selene Maria Ines
