This group is called "Las Soñadoras de Bogambilia," and it is made up of 10 people who are natives of the city of Pinotepa Nacional.

One of the members of this group is Alicia, who is 74 years old. She has had a business selling groceries for 2 years. Alicia says that she got her business going thanks to the support of her daughter, Maria del Rosario, who gave her the idea of selling groceries. Later, they began to buy consumer staples such as sugar, coffee, eggs, chilies, tomatoes and detergent. Over time, Alicia and her daughter realized that the business was profitable, and they set out to invest more in it. Now the products they sell the most are: soft drinks, coffee, sugar, tomatoes, onions and eggs.

In running her business, Alicia must practice certain qualities, including friendliness to her customers. She also must keep her store well stocked and organized. Alicia mentions that one of the things that makes her happiest is that she can rely on the help of her daughter, Maria Rosario, because due to her age she could not arrange all of the merchandise. But her daughter is always with her, helping her to clean her store. Alicia says that she is considered to be a special person because she likes to feel useful, in spite of her age, and she has a strong desire to keep working. She is requesting this loan to buy more groceries to sell at retail. To her fellow group members, Alicia is "Licha, la incansable" (Licha, the tireless one), a role model.
