* not pictured
This group is called “El Trébol de las Flores” and is composed of ten hardworking, humble women from Santiago Pinotepa, a place where most citizens are indigenous and still wear “naguas” and “huipiles” [traditional skirts and blouses].

One of the group members is Leticia Araceli, 36. She is a single mother and she tells us that she has been selling jewelry for the last 7 years. What she likes best about her business is having her customers’ orders ready on time since most of the orders are gifts for weddings, 15th birthday parties, 1st communions, baptisms and birthdays.

Leti, as she’s better known by her group members, tells us that she used to organize “tandas” [informal group savings schemes] but she’s always wanted to have her own business so she started to buy a little bit of jewelry in the month of June when children get out of school and vacations start and she noticed that it was a good business so she used her profits to buy more merchandise like earrings, chains, bracelets and hoop earrings.

With support from the Fundación she was able to buy more things both in gold and silver to obtain more profits since her younger customers like children in secondary school want less expensive items; this is when she decided to sell silver.

Leti tells us that she always works with love since with her profits and effort she's been able to provide an education for her daughter that she loves and wants to support since she’s both mother and father to her greatest treasure, her daughter.

She requested the loan to buy more jewelry merchandise like earrings, chains, necklaces, bracelets and hoop earrings.

She tells us that she’s very grateful to the Fundación for supporting single mothers who want their children to go to school.

In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
