Grupo S (Comercio) Group's story

"Grupo S" is a group made up of relatives who work very comfortably independently. They said that they do not like to have other members in the loan group, because they believe it is easier to arrange the details among themselves. This family lives in a very quiet community where people still preserve their cultural traditions. They are owners of a workshop that has been active for more than 30 years. Marco Antonio, 44, is married to Elvira and together they have created a family with their children, who are in school. He says that he previously worked in Mexico City, but since he already had experience with cars, he decided to start his own business and in order to perfect his service, he studied for three years. He has lots of customers that come from very far away. However, they are very happy, because Marco Antonio works hard to earn good profits to pay for household expenses and his children's education. Marco Antonio's only difficulty is the lack of land to expand his mechanic shop and equip it well. They don't want to sell him more land where it is currently located. This family's only goal is to be able to increase its profits to improve its quality of life. This is why they, as well as Elvira and Jesus, are asking for a loan to invest in their mechanic shop and to buy oil and repair parts for cars.

In this group: Elvira, Marco Antonio, Jesus Valdemar
