Tekojoaju Group's story

The Tekojoaju Group is in its first cycle of the women's committee program. They are indigenous women, all of them working and helping themselves to get ahead. They are doing the survey of poverty elimination, and all of the women are below the line of poverty with very scarce income.

One of the members is Martha, who through effort, continuous work, and by applying the vital behaviors of a successful woman, wants to keep improving her impoverished situation. Martha works in the development and sale of handicrafts with which she is trying to get ahead to be able to help her family. She is very determined and hardworking woman.

Martha is requesting a loan to purchase crafting materials to be able to keep making crafts and to fight for her family, which will help her realize her business plan and improve her income.

In this group: Marta, Lurdes, Zunilda, Irma, Vuenaventura, Alice, Virginia, Eduarda, Blasida, Isidra, Nizaela, Doralicia, María
