Las Coquetas I Group's story

This group is called "Las Coquetas" and is maD. up of eight enterprising women who are characterised by their friendliness, working together in a harmonious environment. The group is located in the state of Hidalgo in Mexico.

Albina C. Gómez is a member of the group. She is 41 years of age and studied at secondary school. She has a sewing workshop in her home where five people help her with her sewing tasks. The clothes that she sews are distributed to a large company, which is why at times she has a lot of work due to the orders that she receives.

Albina has worked for just over 15 years in her sewing workshop and she has a lot of experience in this field. Her neighbours and relatives see her as a hardworking, responsible and attentive woman. She also attends to home duties and she has a 4 year old son.

Albina decided to work in a field that would help her obtain an income that would give her family a better quality of life. The loan that Albina is requesting will be used to purchase another sewing machine and to maintain her existing sewing machines, with the aim of expanding her sewing workshop.

In this group: Pilar Angelica, Albina, Natividad, Ignacia, Eulogia Ofelia, Lucia, Erika, Diana Monserrat
