Chicorral Group's story

Doña Dorca is single, finished sixth grade in primary school and dedicates herself to the commercial purchase and sale of typical clothing with complex silk embroidery and dyed threads and has had this business for ten years. With enthusiasm and the help of some neighbors they've organized a group in order to request a loan. The group is called Chicorral, the name indicates where the women are from. The group includes six integral women who dedicate themselves to diverse activities including the raising of animals, the sale of blankets, and the sale of clothing for children. They will use the loan to purchase merchandise and thereby increase the volume of sales with which they hope to have greater earnings and improve their condition of living.

In this group: Dorca Griselda , Estela , Isabel , Odilia , Santa , Carmen
