Las Alondras Del Creston Group's story

This group, called "Las Alondras del Crestón" (The Larks of Creston), has this name because a river passes by the place that they meet, and at this river birds called alondras (larks) go down to bathe themselves. The women like these birds very much, and so for this reason they decided upon this name for their group. They say that the larks have a brightness that reflects their great hope. This place is located in the community of Crestón, in Hidalgo, Mexico. This group has 10 members. Rosario Catalina is a member of the group. She is 43 years old, has a high school education, and has 2 male children. She has had a small eatery for 5 years. She requests a loan to make improvements to her business. Her customers say that they enjoy eating in her establishment because she is very cheerful and welcoming. Now, requesting this loan, she feels very content and is eager to work, because she requests the loan to improve her business so that she can continue to provide good service and, on her part, achieve her dream of buying an automobile.

In this group: Rosario Catalina, Martha, Veronica, Minerva, Antonieta, Epifania, Dolores Lizeth, Maria Luisa, Maria De Los Angeles, Alba Brigida
