La Flor De Limon Group's story

This group is called Flor de Limón ["Lemon Flower"], and it is made up of 9 members. It is located in Quintana Roo, México. Jacinta C. is a member of the group and a neighbor living in the community of Maya de Limones. She is 46 years old and lives in a wooden house with a thatched roof made from a local palm called huano. She likes it, but she would like something better for her children, because she does not want them to grow up in a single room without any privacy. Jacinta's business is tailoring; she makes all types of garments, repairs clothing, and takes custom orders from her neighbors. However, she comments that if she had an electric sewing machine, her work would go more quickly. She is happy about the loan she is requesting, because she would like to expand her business and be able to satisfy the requests of all of her customers.

In this group: Jacinta, Glendy Zuleyma, Angelica Maria, Maria, Maura, Areli, Daniela Yaremi, Apolonia, Levi
