Oralia is married to her husband and is 32 years old. She never had the opportunity to study, and she has one child, who is also not in school. She works in her home as a housewife, and also has work making skirts and traditional blouses (guipiles). She began this work with the help of her mother when Oralia was only 12 years old. Now, she has 20 years of experience in this line of work, and she has the support of her husband, who works in agriculture. The group has been organized to ask for a loan, which she will use to buy thread of different types and colors, and in the future she wants to have various sales points to make money from the production of skirts and blouses and make a good living. The other members of the group are craftspeople, small animal ranchers, and some are in agriculture.
