El Jasmin Group's story

Rebeca is another member of the "Jazmin" group. She is 45 years old and studied no further than primary school. She is married to a man named Alfonso. Rebeca tells us that a little over 15 years ago, she opened a small grocery store with the support of her family. Over the years, the store has grown little by little and she says that products are always selling because she sells items that people need on a daily basis. Her business is in her own home. The grocery store has not just given her the chance to provide the family with a higher quality of life but it has also helped her to teach her children that you must work to earn a living and that you can only progress by working together. Rebeca will use the loan to buy a variety of products such as tinned food, oil, juices, beans, salt, rice, soup, sugar, flour, candy, drinks, chillis, tomatoes and onions to stock up the store. In the future, she would like to see her business become bigger and better stocked so as to provide a better service to the customers in her town. The group sends greeting to those who have helped make their loan possible.
