Accesorios Clemente Group's story

The "Accesorios Clemente" ["Clemente Accessories"] group has been through three loan cycles with the institution, and they comment that they are very happy and grateful, since thanks to the loans they have grown a lot. Jesús is the group's representative. He is 28 years old and has lived in a common-law marriage with Josefina for 10 years. Together they have formed a family with three children, two of whom go to school. Jesús and Josefina have a family business selling auto accessories. They sell colored bulbs, decals, car deodorizers, steering wheels, floor mats, etc. This time they are requesting the loan to buy more products that they need, such as cables for the installation of their alarms. Jesús comments: “Previously I didn't know how to carry out the installation of the alarms, but I am taking classes to learn and to make progress with my business, since the difficulty that arose is not knowing how to manage my business, because I only started it recently, and I started it because my papa worked in this field." Jesús only has three years of experience with his business. Jesús' goal is to make his business grow, but he would also like it if in the future he could set up a new business near his home, because the space where he currently has his accessories business is only lent to him, and he has to pay the rent monthly, which is an expense for his family that he is obligated to pay. Within the group, Jessica also participates; she is Jesús' sister and operates a store.
