Las Margaritas 2 Group's story

Domitila is a responsible and hardworking person who is 49 years old and is married to Gregorio, who works in construction and also in agriculture. They have 3 children. Never, 25, and Gregorio, 20, both help their father, and her daughter Adilene, 22, helps her mother. None of them are in school.

Domitila is a trader and she works selling bread which she delivers every other day of the week: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. As she doesn't have a store, in order to sell she has to go out selling door-to-door. However, she says that if her sales are good, she goes out to sell in one part of town and her daughter sells in another. She believes that she does better this way than if she had her own oven to make the bread.

Domitila is a member of the communal bank "Las Margaritas 2," which is made up of 12 very hardworking women who are capable of getting ahead for their families.
