Mujeres Unidas De Patachaj Group's story

Santa Higinia is 50 years old, married with six children, two of whom are studying. She herself did not have the opportunity to study. She embroiders blouses. She started this business with a small amount of money which her husband gave her and up to now she has three years experience doing this. She can count on the support of her husband who works as a city bus driver.
