The following group is called “Ranchería la Carrera” (La Carrera Hamlet). The members of this group decided on this name because that’s what the place they live in is called. It’s characterized by being a tranquil community. It is a very small community and practically all the residents know each other. This group is formed by seven very optimistic, hardworking women who decided to join together in a group because they saw an opportunity to develop an economic activity that would help them contribute to their families’ support.

The names of the members and their respective activities are as follows:
1.- Rosa María G. (to buy four lambs and pasturage)
2.- María Esthela S. (to buy lambs to sell)
3.- Marisela G. (to buy chickens to sell and chicken feed)
4.- Emma C. (to buy groceries to sell)
5.- María Angélica R. (to buy 5 lambs to sell)
6.- Celia M. (to buy 5 lambs to sell and pasturage)
7.- Elidia H. (to buy 3 lambs to sell)

Rosa María, 47, only completed first grade. She does house work. She’s the group representative and has been married to Claudio Víctor for 30 years; he works as a bricklayer. They have nine children three of which still are dependent on them and attend 7th, 9th and 11th grades.

Rosa is a FRAC client and is very responsible and optimistic. She requests this loan because she buys and sells sheep and chickens and also for feed and medicine to raise them with. She comments that she buys the chicks at her town’s veterinary so that they will be healthy and sometimes she also buys them in her community; she buys the sheep in her community.

She raises them at home and clears them of parasites in order to sell them later on. She comments that it usually takes her four months to sell her chickens and up to a year to sell a little lamb. She has three years’ experience in this type of business so she knows she’ll do very well. “What I do is raise my little animals and when they are ready I sell them earning profits. I reinvest the money and also use it for food for my family. To date, the only problem I’ve faced is that sometimes my little animals get sick, especially the little lambs, and they sometimes die of their illnesses. But I’m sure and I trust that everything will turn out very well because I want to continue working hard because in the future I’d like to start a napkin and thread business,” Rosa comments hopefully.
