Las Margaritas De Nimasac Group's story

Señora Andrea, age 28, is married. She did not have the opportunity to study. She has three children, two of whom are in elementary school. Andrea weaves traditional clothing. She started off with only a small amount of capital and some loans, and she now has eight years' experience. She has organized a group to request a loan which she will use for the purchase of threads for knitting and weaving traditional clothing. She hopes to have a big business with employees in the future. Some other group members also weave traditional clothing; others make candles or raise small animals.

In this group: Francisca, Andrea, Sara, Jesusa, Josefa, Catarina, Catalina, Maria Magdalena, Antonia, Andrea, Toribia Marcela, Andrea
