Duo Mujeres Solidarias Group's story


This duo was formed by Rosa Maria, who is 37 years old, married and the mother of 5 children who still live with her and who go to school in town. She is the leader of the group. She tells us she needs this loan to be able to buy materials she needs to make clay comales [clay dishes to make tamales]. This has been her job for 20 years. She also wants to buy comales that are already made to sell them, because soon it will be the season when comales start to sell really well. She also needs the firewood to buy a lot of firewood, which us what she needs the most to make the comales. With her hard work and effort, she also hopes to keep supporting her children, since lately her husband doesn't want them to go to school anymore because it costs a lot. She doesn't want them to work because the only jobs they could do are making wicks or fireworks, but that is very dangerous, so she wants them to stay in school. She hopes you will support her so she can help her children.
