Las Alacatrces Group's story

Maria Inés, Cintia, and Magdalena are all married. Maria Inés has three children: Juan Enrique, 24; Francisco Javier, 23; and Juan Ángel, 19. Her husband is a mechanic.
Cintia has two daughters: Emili, 3; and Yesenia, 2. Her husband is a mechanic; however, his income fluctuates.
Magdalena has four children: Iliana, 25; Maria Guadalupe, 24; Vianey, 17; and Cesar Mario, 16. Her husband is a rancher.
These women want to help their husbands with the household expenses, as well as give their children a better way of life. For these reasons they decided to start a business.
Maria Inés has been selling clothes for 16 years, which has helped her obtain an extra income. Cintia started 2 years ago selling shoes through a catalogue to her friends and family members. Now her client base is larger. Magdalena started her business 18 years ago. Her goal was to produce her own income, and selling clothes has allowed her to accomplish this goal. Maria Inés is the coordinator of this group called "Las Alcatraces".
They ask for a loan of $ 875, which they will repay in 4 months, to help their business grow, and thus, allow them to provide a better quality of life for their children.

In this group: Maria Ines, Maria Magdalena, Cintia
