Girasoles Group's story

The Girasoles (sunflowers) group is so-called because the members love the beauty and colour of this flower. One of the members is 39-year old Sra. Adela Regina who earns her living selling crafts made of fabric such as clothing, gowns for little girls and women, and embroidered collars.

Adela is happily married to 40-year old Sr. Rodolfo. They have a son also called Rodolfo like his father. When Adela doesn’t have much embroidery to do, she goes with her family to the fields to cut corn and bring back ferns to sell. She is very happy to get a loan as it will enable her to buy blankets, thread, collars for embroidering, and rice for cooking. She really likes the opportunities for creativity with colours that her work embroidering gowns provides.
