A loan of $2,425 helped a member to purchase soft drinks.


Estrellitas Group's story

Guadalupe is 28 years old and stayed in school up to high school level. She is married and has three children. Two of her children attend elementary school. Guadalupe is a member of the Estrellitas group.

Three years ago, Guadalupe started selling soft drinks from her home to her friends and neighbors. She works to support her husband and her family with this additional income. She needs a loan to invest in buying a variety of soft drinks.

Guadalupe hopes that this loan will help her business to thrive because she would like her children to continue attending school and would like to continue supporting her husband. She will be able to provide her family with a better life.

The other members of this group are: Ines, who sells meat; Zacarías, who sells groceries; Deysi, who sells clothing; Rosa María, who sells tacos; Gregoria, who sells footwear; María Rosa, who sells tortillas, and Teodora who sells snacks.
