Las Posesionarias Group's story

Las posesionarias is a solidary group composed of 6 working women, which was named by its first advisor. It has six loans and all of them live in the Regiomontano municipality. Myriam is the group's leader. She is a 30-year-old woman, who is married with two children that are 10 and 8 years old (both students). Her husband waterproofs houses and Myriam wanted to help him with the family expenses. She was first invited to sell jewelry, and because she likes sales, she accepted. Then, she started to sell quilts and other items, and started a snack kiosk outside her house. She will use the loan to resupply the snack kiosk and to buy baby items, such as strollers, carriers and more. Myriam would like to acquire an establishment so she can sell her merchandise more comfortably, both for her and for her customers.

In this group: Alicia , Elvira, Gloria Araceli, Gloria Aracely , Myriam Johana, Sanjuana Mayela
