Las Azucenas Dobles Group's story

This group is called "Las Azucenas Dobles" and is located in Lerma. The group is made up of 11 members, one of whom is Senorina G. H., better known as "Doña Seno". She sells embroidered napkins and tablecloths. Seno says that her mother taught her to embroider when she was very young, and this is the reason that she decided to continue with this art. Seno is a single mother and has three children who are her pride and who drive her to succeed and to be able to make them professionals with a more comfortable life. Seno's loan will be used to purchase threads and fabrics to make more embroidery to sell to her neighbours and some customers.

In this same group is Miss Teresa V. Q. who sells accessories for automobiles. She is requesting a loan to invest in material for her business. She has four children, two of whom are grown and married, one of whom is in university and the youngest of whom is in the second year of high school. Teresa tells us that her main incentive to invest and grow her business is to be able to continue to support her children's studies.
