The group named Crisantemo is made up of three determined and entrepreneurial women as well as one hardworking man. The group is coordinated by Oscar, who is married and has one child. Twenty-five years ago, he opened his business, which was left to him by his mother-in-law. Oscar produces and sells flowers, both artificial and natural. He needs a loan in order to buy raw materials like green foam, baskets of all types, wire, and different color ribbons to make flower baskets to sell.
