Las Aguilas Group's story

Maria Florinda is 48 years old and married. She has an elementary school education and has one son who attends school. Maria embroiders blouses. She started doing this as an employee and now has 25 years’ experience. Her husband also supports her.

She’s put together a group so that they can request a loan and use it to buy different colored threads to expand her blouse production. She hopes that she will be able to have more employees and better capital in the future. The other women also embroider, weave, are merchants, and raise livestock.

In this group: Maria Florinda, Mayra Aracely, Angelica Rosita, Maura Lucrecia, Nicanora, Francisca, Florinda, Isabel*, Maria, Julia Felipa
