Florecita Group's story

The Florecita ("Little Flower") group is composed of three hard-working, enterprising, women.

One of them is Señora Rosa Argentina. She is 40 years old, and has 5 children, 2 of whom are of school age. For the past 14 years, she has dedicated her time to making brushes for washing baby bottles. She learned her business from her brother, who did the same work and who little by little got the whole family involved. She will invest in the necessary materials (nylon, wire, wood, etc.) and her goal is to start up another business, selling clothes.

The other members of the group are Maricela del Carmen, age 35, who sells refried beans and nacatamales - a local dish based on cornmeal and pork - and María Isabel, who makes brushes for cleaning clothes and polishing shoes.

In this group: Rosa, Maricela, María
