Margaritas De Endare Group's story

This group of 12 members is called 'Margaritas D. Endare'. The group chose this name because they like flowers very much, principally the margarita. The group is located in the Endare Community, Mexico state. Amalia, the treasurer of the group, is 40, studied secondary school and now works selling shoes and dressmaking. Amalia has 9 children, 6 girls and 3 boys. She is seeking a loan to invest in purchasing merchandise and primary materials - threads, yarn, hooks etc. She hopes with this investment in her business to obtain utilities that permit her children to finish their studies, and also hopes that each one of her children achieves success in life and becomes a stable family base. The example Amalia gives is that of never giving in to defeat and working hard to obtain what you plan to.

In this group: Maria De Lourdes, Cristina, Amalia, Edith, Elvia, Lorena, Maria Delfina, Maricruz*, Marisol, Victoria, Martha Mireya, Maria De Los Angeles*
