Rosalia's Group's story

Rosalia’s group is made up of 8 people: 6 women and 2 men. The woman in the red poncho on the right in the photo is not a member of the group. On the other hand, the young man with the black turtleneck sweater on the right and the man who has a jacket with the letter N are members. The other women are wives or partners of the members. Rosalia is the president of the group.

Rosalia is 53 and she lives in Latacunga with her husband and 5 offspring who are 25, 33, 31, 22 and 16 years old. Rosalia is a calm person.

26 years ago she started making baskets with her husband. They got the money for the supplies by selling animals. This is the second loan with FODEMI and she will use it to purchase materials to make the baskets.

Her dream is to continue with her business, to improve it, and especially to feel better.

In this group: María Rosalía, Nelson, Olga, Ana María , Walter , Nancy , Blanca, María
