Señora Fabiola B. L. is a member of the group "CUANICUTI". They named their group after some condominiums in their area and this is where they will hold their weekly meetings. She is very proud to be a member of this group as she is the representative. Doña Fabiola is originally from Naucalpan de Juárez in Mexico state. Because of family matters, she came with her parents to live in Zitacuaro Michoacán 20 years ago. She is 30 years old and studied social work. She says that she is not working in her professional field because she got married and decided to dedicate her time to her family. Doña Fabi, as her friends and family call her, sells catalog products and also works as a sales coordinator for a cosmetics company. She has worked at this job for more than 4 years. She started selling catalog products because, when she was a young girl, she used to help her mother sell catalog products. She also helps her husband sell and maintain copiers as well as selling copier cartridges, toner and stationary. She says that she has approximately 10 years of experience in the copier business and that her husband, Señor Uriel, was the one who taught her this business. He runs this small business out of their home, saving on rent. They have a daughter named Melanie who is 8 years old and attends elementary school. Señora Fabiola says that her goal is to have a fixed location where she can sell cosmetics and other catalog products and move the copier business there. She says that she will save the earnings from her catalog and copier sales to purchase a piece of land where she can have the commercial site that she dreams of.

Blanca Estela C. M. is another member of the group "CUANICUTI" and is 54 years old. She finished school until 6th grade and says that she could not continue her studies because her parents couldn't continue supporting her. Her parents said that women didn't have to go to school because they would just get married and an education would be no use. Doña Blanca is married to Señor Miguel who works as a line repairman. They had 6 children and they are all now married. Doña Blanca sells used clothing at the supply center in Zitacuaro. She has had a stand there for about 8 years now. She decided to start this business as a way to help her husband with her medical expenses because she was suffering from menopause and had to purchase expensive medication. She used to work as a seamstress. She made wedding dresses, quinceañera dresses and evening gowns, but, unfortunately, her illness caused her to slowly lose her sight and she couldn't continue sewing. She is a very hard-working person. She gets up at 6 am every day to go to work in Toluca in Mexico state to sell her clothing and every Thursday she leaves even earlier to get a spot in the open air market in town. In Toluca, she buys large quantities of used clothing. Doña Blanca is requesting a loan to purchase used clothing and she also plans to buy used shoes to sell at her stand. Her goal is to save enough money to rent a commercial site for her business she can increase her stock and her customer base.

The other 8 members of the group are Manuel Humberto O. C., Judith López García, Decire Marín P., Minerva Rúelas C., Melina López Colín and Nadia Iveth López G..
