Las Morenitas (Flat) Group's story

The group is called “Las Morenitas” and it’s composed of four ladies each with her respective activity; they live in the Santa Cecilia neighborhood, the neighborhood of musicians.

Rebeca was interviewed. She’s 30 years old and is married to Adelaido; they have two children who are still their responsibility.

She requested the loan to buy Avon brand cosmetics; she’s been working at that for a year and six months and she comments that she does well there in that she’s earning income for her household.

She started this activity so that she could help her husband and he wouldn’t have to shoulder the entire obligation by himself so they decided together to work to provide what’s most necessary for their small family.

What Rebeca wants from this small activity is to manage to continue forward and in time to have another job that will give her good results.

The members of the group are: Virginia who will use the loan to buy ingredients to make tamales, Norma Alicia who will buy clothes and María Elizabeth who will buy ingredients to make tamales.

In this group: Virginia, Norma , Maria Elizabeth, Rebeca
