La Vista Del Angel Group's story

The La Vista del Angel (Vision of the Angel) group is formed of three hardworking and responsible women. The coordinator of the group is Maria Andrea, 40 years old, single. She sells caramels and different kinds of clothing in a traveling manner and from her home. She has been doing this for nine years. She is requesting the loan to invest in clothing merchandise such as shirts, women's jeans, men's jeans, lycra, camisoles, dresses for girls, suits for boys, etc.

This is the second loan cycle with this institution for her business, and with the previous loan, the member earned better revenue. This allowed her to reinvest in the products with highest demand from the population.

The other members are Mercedes, and she sells clothes and cosmetics in the streets of her community. The other member is Aura, 58 years old. She butchers pigs and then makes products from them such as nactamales (like tamales), pork rinds, and fried things. This has allowed her to get better profit margins.

In this group: Maria Andrea, Mersedes Isabel, Aura Estela
