These eleven women seek to move forward and advance economically so that they can have a better quality of life. The group representative is Angelina C. C. who has a business grinding corn and raising pigs. She is requesting a loan to expand her grinding business and open a grocery store where she can sells soft drinks, juices, and bread.
Doña Margarita is another member of this group who has a grocery store. She also works as a tour guide, assisting visitors from the United States and Brazil who want to see the butterfly sanctuary. Margarita works as a tour guide from November 4th until the last few days of March when the monarch butterfly ends its hibernation and begins its migration to the United States and Canada. The butterflies return during the months of December, January, and February to mate. Margarita says these events are beautiful to watch and that her neighbors in the area are proud to witness them. She is 56 years old and has a large family of ten children, five sons and five daughters. Eight of her children are already married and only two still live with her. Unfortunately, one child is disabled and requires treatments. Doña Margarita’s husband works as a carpenter in the community. She lives in her own home and now has great desire to move forward in her businesses so that she can help her child.
