Las Abejitas Group's story

This group is called “Las Abejitas” (The Little Bees) and consists of three married women who are engaged in their individual business activities. The woman who was interviewed is María del Carmen. She is married to Sr. Jaime and they have three children who are their responsibility.

María del Carmen is a homemaker and is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of ingredients such as corn, oil, meat, raisins, banana leaves, ancho chiles, and other items. She has been working for six months and says that she has done very well with her income. María del Carmen was inspired to start this business so that she could help her husband with generating household income and providing their children with what they needed most so that they would lack nothing.

What she wants most is to see her small business improve day after day so that she can save some of her income to open a small shop where she can sell rice pudding and tamales.

The other ladies in the group are as follows: • Idolina will invest in the purchase of materials for knitting and embroidering. • Sra. María de Jesús will invest in the purchase of ingredients for making bread.

In this group: Idolina, Maria De Jesus, Maria Del Carmen
