She dedicates herself to selling perfumes by catalog, an endeavor she began 3½ years ago. She requested a loan to buy more perfumes, so she could grow her business. Her goal is to open her own locale where she can sell her perfumes and cosmetics.

Another member of the group is Margarita Martínez J.. She is 48 years old, studied until primary school, is married and has 4 children; 3 daughters ages 19, 16, and 4, as well as 1 son who is 18.

Margarita dedicates herself to selling clothing, a business she started 9 years ago. She is requesting the loan to buy more clothing and invest in her business. Her dream is to open her own store so she can sell her products, since she wants to grow her business and sell other types of merchandise.
