Las Margaritas Group's story

The solidarity group, "Las Margaritas" is made up of three members: Francisca M. A., Maria Florinda I. J., and Bilma Yesenia M. A.. They make a living from various activities, including selling traditional clothing, aprons, and furniture. Francisca is 42 years old; Maria is 34; and Bilma is 33. Although they perform different activities, they have the same purpose and dreams. Bilma Yesnia has a store where she sells living room and dining room furniture. She is an enterprising woman who gathered two other partners together to form this small group with the purpose of expanding her business. Her dream is to have more working capital and more merchandise for sale, so that they can all achieve their dreams. However, the thing that stands out the most is to continue supporting their children, and to keep them well-fed and clothed. They have been running this business for 8 years now.

In this group: Bilma Yesenia , Francisca , Maria Florinda
