The Sparrows Group's story

The group is called "The Sparrows". It is located in the community of Itzamatitlan (a Nahuatl word meaning 'the turtles beneath the trees'), located in the state of Morelos in Mexico. The group is made up of 9 members.

Ines E. is the treasurer of the group. She is 48 years old and she sells napkins and building materials. She has 4 children (one girl named Laura, and three boys named Jose Luis, Martin and Roberto). Ines has had her business for the past 7 years after having taken an embroidery course. This has been very valuable to her because it is through this business that she has been able to contribute together with her husband, Roberto. He is a farmer. She will use her loan to purchase more materials such as fabrics, threads, yarn, and ribbons to make her crafts. Her dream is to purchase another sewing machine. The one she has is very worn out.

In this group: Ines, Ana Laura, Maria Elena, Laura, Abilga, Ruth Cury Caberi, Noemi Sabina, Rosa Maria, Flor Del Rocio
