Flor De Maguey Group
María works every day from 4:00 to 9:00 pm, combining 8 hours of weaving with housework. She is so active that she has not only generated income for her and her family, but also employs six poor women in her community.
With her credit María hopes to strengthen her textile business and hire porters to plant corn. She is very happy about having learned how to use credit and having undertaken this business. She does not know what would have happened if she had not access to credit, she is pretty sure she had not been able to educate their daughters.
