Maria's Group's story

Aura Marina is 26 years old and married. She has a third grade education. She has one child who attends school. She devotes herself to handicrafts. She makes ecological bags using paper, silicone, and thread. She started this business with her husband’s help, and she has four years of experience. She has her husband’s support; he is a merchant. She organized a group in order to be able to request a loan. She will use the loan to buy paper, silicone, and thread. It is only this way that she will improve her production of the bags made from paper. In the future she hopes to see her business improve its earnings and to have the chance to support her husband with the construction of their house.
