A loan of $2,175 helped a member packaging for her next harvest.


Alegres Group's story

This photo was taken at the nursery of Mrs.Ana Isabel B. C., who is a member of the Las Alegres (Happy Women) group that meets in Tenancingo, Edo Mex. Also in the photo are shoots of the “Alcatraz” plants that she grows.

She grows and sells flowers since she is a flower-grower. She began this business six years ago with the help of her husband and now with that of her children, supporting the family with the earnings from this business.

She will use the loan to invest in packing materials for her next harvest, since she says that is the most important thing because in this way the flowers stay fresher and live longer. Her customers have the same opinion; they say they are looking for better packaging. She is well-known in flower sales for her attituD. about selling; she is an aggressive businesswoman because of the effort she puts into her sales.

She always shows the happiness that characterizes her. This is the true reason for naming the group Las Alegres.

In the photo, Ana Isabel is the first woman from left to right, wearing a short-sleeved white shirt and blue pants. She is 28 years old and studied only through the second year of elementary school. She has three children. They are Herendirá R., who is 11 and in elementary school, Gabriel R. who is 7 and in the third year of elementary school, and Marco R. who is 6 and will begin elementary school this year.
