Vicente Guerrero Group's story

Mirna is a member of the group Vicente Guerrero. She is a hard working, happy, and enterprising woman. For more than 6 years she has worked in the sale of plastic molds for food, cosmetics, and shoes by catalog.

“I like this activity. It has always been something that creates an income and it is nice knowing people. I visit my friends and I earn money. The loans that they have given us have helped me to put the money all together and with one go allowed me to supply products. Later I rearrange products and I get ahead. “

She completes her sales house by house with her friends and neighbors from the community. Across these 6 years she has gained good clients that have helped her to sell more and have good earnings.

She began this work because she wanted to work and earn her own money, but without neglecting her household. They invited her to sell by catalog and she decided to try it out. She ended up liking sales.

She will invest this loan in the purchase of cosmetics (nail polish, lipsticks, liners, shades, makeup, deodorants, and perfumes), variety of shoes, and dishes.

Miran is 41-years-old, she only studied in High school, and is married to Daniel who works as a teacher. They have two daughters.

In the future she would like to be able to rent a space where she can sell her products, but without leaving her sales made by going to homes. Also, she would like that her daughters be able to study a professional career.

The other members of the group: Paulina sells at a food shop, Vianey Del Carmen sells at a food shop, Juana Maria sells at food shops.
