Triumphant Women! Group's story

The group was named ‘Triumphant Women » because they all hope to be successful and to prosper their businesses. The members all know each other and are friends. The group was formed in the state of Mexico. Mrs. Guadalupe M. is single and she has 4 children. She completed high school and now she is a seamstress, making all types of dresses, from very ornate to the very simple. She says that her work has granted her the ability to support her children, all of whom are school aged. She plans on continuing on with her sewing so that her children will grow up to have a career. Mrs. Maria R. is married with Miguel S., a farmer, and they have no children. She has a seamstress shop where she makes sweaters that she sells in wholesale and in retail. She says that when her husband is not working, his harvests are seasonal, she feels very proud to be in charge of the household economy. She plans on continuing on with her work to secure a prosperous future for herself and her husband.
