Rebozo De Mujer Group's story

This group is called “Rebozo D. Mujer” (Woman’s Shawl) because shawls are manufactured in this community and it’s the women who make them. The group is located in Tenancingo in the state of México and it has 10 members.

Julia S. is married. She has a daughter and six sons. She is currently living with four of her children in her home. One of her sons is a teacher and the other lives in the United States.

Julia is from Tenancingo. She wants a loan to invest in the general store she’s had for about fourteen years. What she pretends to do is expand her business buying more products since her community is far from the area's main town and people need a variety of merchandise. This way she both helps people by offering them the products and her family can have daily support.

In this group: Maria Del Carmen, Estephani Nayelli, Juana, Veronica, Lorena, Maria Irma, Silvia, Julia, Maria Luisa, Teodora
