Maria Blanca is one one of the members of a group called Flor D. Campo which is maD. up of 12 people who are very friendly and all of them work in a different field. Alejandro sells sandals.

Aurora sells clothing. Magdalena sells Mexican appetizers. Maria Guillermina sells shoes.

Maria Blanca is 54 years old, studied through secondary school, and is married to Juan who works in the fields, and they have three daughters who are already married.

Maria Blanca talks to us about how she has always liked her work but about five years ago with the help of her husband she opened a little grocery store in order to earn some extra money and to help her husband with the household expenses. She continues by saying that thanks to God the store is growing little by little and with time she has built up a client base.

She thanks the community bank for the loan that has been approved and she hopes that with this loan her business will prosper and she can give her family a better quality of life and bit by bit enlarge her store.
