She also says that she is very proud to belong to this group and be its representative. She is from the town of Zitácuaro Michoacán, and she is 29 years old and is finishing high school in an Open High School program, because her parents were unable to afford her uniform and other school supplies when she was younger. She says that her spouse is a great help to her because he motivates her to study and to advance. Rosy, as her friends call her, sells sweets, juices, soy chicharrones, soft drinks, fried foods, ice blocks, and more, in front of the regional hospital of Zitácuaro. She has had this business for 2 years, and began to sell juices and other things because she saw that the family members of the hospital patients didn't have anything for lunch, and she decided to put up her stall. Another motivation for putting her stall there was that she wanted to help her husband with the household expenses. Rosy is married to Salvador, who is a lawyer and they have a 6 year old daughter named Leylan, who is in first grade. Rosy says that he goal in life is to be able to have a fixed location from which to sell her treats and also to sell jewelry, as she likes to design necklaces and jeweled bracelets. Another of her goals is to finish school and complete a degree in law. She says that with the earnings from her sales of sweets and juices that she's saved, she wants to buy some land to have permanent store she's dreamed of.


María Amparo S. López is part of the “Flores Magon” group. She is 43 year old and is in her third year of Open High School. She says she had not finished her studies earlier because her parents didn't have the money to continue to support her with her school expenses. She is married to José Carlos who is a carpenter and together they have 3 sons: José Carlos, who works with his dad and wants to open a grocery store, Paulo Cesar, who is 13 years old and studies in secondary school, and Mauricio, who is 6 and is in primary school. María sells beauty products through a catalogue, like creams, makeup, etc. She has done this for about 9 years. She decided to open her business to help her husband with the kids' expenses and also to be able to watch over them and her house.
