Las Masheñas Group's story

36-year-old Maria is a mother of a family. She has three children, aged 9 months to 4 years old. The family lives in a community within the Panimache region. Maria, so that her family does not have to go without, helps her husband with expenses. She makes a living buying and selling clothing typical of her region. She has worked in this business for 15 years, but in order to improve her earnings, she has a small grocery store where she receives other income.

Maria is an entrepreneurial woman, with big goals so that her family prospers. With the week approaching, demand for typical clothing always increases and for this reason, she should better supply her business so that customers have more products to choose from. However, her greatest difficulty is not having the money necessary to make the investment. For this reason, she is applying for a loan to purchase products of typical clothing, such as güipiles (a regional dress or blouse), corsets and shorts.

Her greatest hope in life is to strengthen her business and have a different quality of life.
