A loan of $5,700 helped a member buy the ingredients for making tamales to sell.

Guapas Group's story

"Guapas" [Good Looking Women] is a solidarity group that through 6 loan cycles has been very punctual in their payments. Guadalupe, one of its members, is a 40-year-old woman who has 3 children, ages 25, 12, and 3. She sells tamales by the dozen and also fills special orders. Guadelupe has done this for nearly a year now and her older daughter helps her with deliverys.

With this loan, she will purchase the necessary ingredients for preparing tamales, including corn husks for wrapping, corn meal, stew, etc.

Guadelupe's dream is to establish her own stall and to expand in order to have more customers.

In this group: Adriana, Deyanira Anali, Guadalupe, Irma Graciela, Karen Patricia, Lydia, Mayra Teresa
