Dulce Group's story

This Group is called DULCE (Sweet) and is located in Lerma. The group has 10 members. They named themselves Dulce because all the members are cheerful and happy. Sometimes, since they speak the Otomí dialect, they tell jokes among themselves and laugh together.

One of the group members is Adelina L.G., better known in the group as “AD..” She is group treasurer and she tells us that she learned embroidery from her grandmother and mother since she was a little girl. Also, her native tongue is Otomí and she’s very proud of this and she transmits it to her children since it still perseveres in the region.

AD. tells us that the loan will be used to buy supplies for her embroidery like fabric and thread to make napkins to sell among her acquaintances. She also supplies some to one of her sisters who goes to sell them in the Federal District (México City). All this is in an effort to help her husband and get her small daughter ahead in life.

María L.R. is also a member of this group. She has a small grocery store in her home. She has three children. One of them is already married and the other two are in school, one in high school and the youngest in middle school. She will use the funds to stock her store in order to have higher profits so that she can proviD. her sons with professional studies.
