Bella Vista 1 Group's story

Migdalia Odeli is a 36-year-old homemaker who completed her education through the fourth grade. She has three children who are in school. Migdalia makes traditional embroidered blouses. She started out making two blouses and has now gained 10 years of experience in this business.

Other members of the group engage in trade, sell shoes, manage a general store, build metal structures, and drive public transportation vehicles.
