Niño Jesus Group's story

The group called “Niño Jesús” (Child Jesus) is in its fifth cycle in the women’s committee program; they are currently filling out the poverty elimination survey which is the way of knowing each one of their situations.

One of the members is Ana. In her previous survey her level of poverty was level three, that is, thanks to her effort she was able to improve her level of poverty. Now, her challenge is to be able to support herself which she will be able to do with much work. She relates that she works in sales since she has a small, well-stocked grocery store. She works every day from very early on and it’s by means of this work that she helps her family with everything she can.

She’s requesting this loan to buy beverages, vegetables, meats, products, bulk items, and others to be able to stock her store to continue with her work.

In this group: Norma, Ignacia, Antoliana, Ana, Sandra, Ana, Irma, Veronica, Amalia, Alejandra, Norma, Lidia, Zunilda, Marcia, Gladys*, Marta*, Celsa*
