Mujeres De Maiz Group's story

Josefina is 36 years old. She is married and has 5 children, 3 of whom are studying. She was not given the opportunity to study. Josefina has a store which she set up with a little capital; she has now been in business for 8 years. Her husband, who is a tailor, supports her in this endeavor. She has set up a group in order to request a loan that will be used to purchase goods for the store - such as sparkling water, juices, candy, dairy products, cereals, charcuterie, etc. She hopes to always have a business to offer clients from her community the products they need. The other members of the group are tailors and make a variety of garments.
