Cuauhtémoc Group's story

Armando is 42 years old and is married with 2 children who are studying in secondary and primary school. He is part of the loan group Cuauhtémoc. Armando has a workshop making and selling tarps, which he makes for houses, for cargo trucks, and for special events. He says that, lately they have been requested for nurseries as there are many nurseries in the area. He says that the fabric is supplied from the city of Toluca and that he puts the tarps together and sews them in the way that his customers request. Right now, he is requesting a loan to grow his business and he hopes that it will go well because he has various orders that he has not been able to meet because of a lack of material. Armando says that he is grateful for the loan because, with it, he will improve his business and he will have what he needs to make his tarps. The other members of the group Cuauhtémoc are called Dulce, Raquel, Zerafina, Erika Jazmín, and María Guadalupe. They will invest in supplies to make and sell bread, in clothes to sell, seasonal fruits and vegetables to sell, buying original perfumes, goods to sell in a grocery store, in maintaining a washing machine, etc.

In this group: Dulce María, Raquel, Zerafina*, Erika Jazmín, María Guadalupe, Raúl, Consuelo, María Guadalupe, Armando
