Alegria De Amaranto Group's story

This group is called "Alegría de amaranto" (Amaranth joy), and is located in Mexico. The group is made up of nine members. María Delfina Domínguez H. is the president of the group. She is 25 years old, and studied until the 6th year of primary school. She is a shopkeeper and has two young boys. She sells embroidered napkins, which she began two years ago. She is requesting the loan to buy more material in order to be able to make more napkins and invest in fabric, ribbon, and thread. Her customers are from the same town. At the moment of requesting the loan, she feels happy, and has a lot of enthusiasm. Also, she hopes to be able to help her husband with the household expenses, because they are still lacking a lot for their home.
