Vicente Guerrero Group's story

Vicente Guerrero is the name of this group made up of four enterprising women. They chose this name for their group because it is the name of the street where they hold their meetings. Paulina is one of the group members. She is 36 years old, is single, and is a university student. According to Paulina, she opened her own business because it was difficult to find some other kind of work. A little over five years ago, she set up a small grocery store from her home. As time passed, her business has grown and she recently built a small shop where her store is located now. Paulina has many clients and she says that what she likes best about her business, besides earning her own money, is that she is constantly in contact with people and she has been able to make good friendships. Paulina's store is open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. She always gives her customers a good deal because this helps to ensure repeat purchases. A loan from Vision Fund will give her the opportunity to restock her store, buying soap, beans, soup, rice, oil, cookies, sweets, fried foods, soft drinks, and canned goods. Paulina hopes that with this investment in her business, she will increase her earnings and be able to better stock her store.
