Maria Ines
My name is Ines, and I am from the San Francisco Tlachichilpa community.

I embroider napkins and sometimes I make jackets for babies or skirts for women. I have always weaved and embroidered. My mother taught me, and it is now like a habit to be weaving. I sell the things that I make.

For example, I sell tablecloths the most. They cover the entire table, and they look pretty as decorations.

I am requesting a loan to make tablecloths and embroideries, to make napkins, and to sell them to earn money.

My wish is that as I make embroidery it sells. It is a little difficult to sell what I make because a lot of people know how to embroider, and they do so regularly. But, it now appears that a lot of people like it and are drawn to woven goods.

I have 11 children who are now married. I live alone because I am a widow. The house in which I live is my own.

Me llamo Ines, soy de la comunidad de San Francisco Talachichilpa, yo me dedico a bordar, hacer servilletas y de ves en cuando hago chamarritas para los bebes o faldas para las señoras, siempre he tejido y bordado me enseño mi madre y ha sido como ya una costumbre de estar tejiendo, vendo las cosas que hago, por ejemplo vendo mas los manteles para la mesa, cubren toda la mesa y se ven bonitos como adornos, pido el prestamo para hacer manteles y bordados, hacer servilletas y venderlas para ganar dinero, mis deseos es que asi como haga un bordado se venda, es un poco dificil vender lo que hago porque hay mucha gente que sabe bordar y se les hace normal, pero ya saliendo hay mucha gente que les gusta y les atrae el tejido, tengo 11 hijos ya son casados, vivo sola porque enviude, la casa en la que vivo es propia.
