Mujeres En Fuerza Y Unión Group's story

Circe is a girl who wants to get ahead. She's from a town with a variety of traditions as well as pretty and picturesque town celebrations.

Circe's part of a group called Mujeres en Fuerza y Unión. She says an acquaintance who belonged to the group invited her so she could set up her own beauty shop. She studied cosmetology in a town near her own. She says she finished school a year ago and has worked in various salons. She would like to have her own business, though, because some of her customers have told her she cuts hair very well and they like how she does pedicures and manicures.

This is why she's encouraged about requesting a loan, because she wants to buy materials to set up the salon in her house. She's going to buy brushes, combs, scissors, dye, curlers, shampoo, and manicure and pedicure tools.

She says she's grateful they're going to give her the loan because she'll be able to set up her own salon, and this makes her content and happy.

The other members of the group are María Luisa, Marisol, María Verónica, Irma, Mario, Luz María, María del Carmen, and Fanny. They will invest in supplies for a stationery store, a grocery store, a beauty salon, and making and selling Mexican snacks.

In this group: María Luisa, María Verónica, Irma María, Mario, Luz María, María Del Carmen, Fanny Mercedes, Circe Grisel, Marisol
