Mujeres De Xecojom Momos Group's story

Santos, 40, is legally single but in a common law marriage. She did not have the opportunity to go to school. She has five children and of them, two are studying. She is an artisan who makes baskets. She began in this business by learning the art with her mother and now she has ten years of experience. She also has the support of her husband, who is a merchant.

She organized a group and she has decided to request a loan to be used in the purchase of material for the making of baskets. In this way, she can increase her working capital. In the future she hopes to have enough capital to be able to make more baskets with different designs and in different sizes. The other members of the group make their livings in sales.

In this group: Petrona , Ines , Ofelia , Melecia , Santos , Delfina
