Mujeres De Chajabal Group's story

Lidia is a married woman who's 32 years old and finished the first six years of elementary school. She has 3 children who are in elementary school. She makes a living doing housework, making t-shirts, and working in a daily goods store. She began the store business with the help of her husband and has 8 years of experience. She relies on the support of her husband who makes a living selling clothing.

She organized a group to request a loan that they used to buy water, soft drinks, juice, cereals, noodles, and eggs, among other products. In the future she hope to see a large and stocked business. The rest of the female members of the group make a living working in the daily goods store, selling traditional clothing, traditionally cut fabric, and raising animals. In the picture there are 12 members but only 11 qualified for the loan.

In this group: Lidia, Lucia, Maria Andrea, Vicenta Paulina, Maria, Maria, Cruz Chan, Brilida Juana, Manuela Virgen, Irma Andrea, Maria
