Lucero De La Mañana Group's story

Ms. Federica is a 45 year-old married woman. She did not have the opportunity to study at all. She has four children, three of whom are in school. She sells typical clothing and also sews aprons. She started off with her family's betterment in mind, and at this point she has eight years of experience. She counts on the support of her husband, who makes pants and aprons.

She has organized a group [named "Lucero de la Mañana" or "Morning Star" Group] with the goal of requesting a loan to increase her working capital. At this time, she would like to buy typical fabrics in order to continue producing more aprons to sell. The rest of the group members are engaged in various economic activities: clothing sales, food sales, a general store, sewing aprons and pants, sewing blouses, and animal husbandry.

In the future, Federica thinks that her business will be large and will include different products.

In this group: Federica, Juana Luisa, Isabel Emiliana, Josefa, Micaela Florinda, Catarina Victoria, Isabel Carolina, Maria Victoriana, Canuta, Maria Magdalena, Antonia, Juana
