Mujeres Del 2000 Group's story

The group "Mujeres del 2000" ("Women of 2000") has been working for seven years in the town's textile trade mostly. It is a group formed by fifteen women, the majority of them married and with an average of five children, and they say that the daily expenses that they have for their home increase more each day, which is why they must search for other sources of income. They do different activities. Some are dedicated to sewing, others have neighborhood stores, and some are dedicated to weaving by hand sweaters, baby clothes, and blankets, among other things, which are works that they create with wool and yarn and then sell in bulk. They want a loan to increase their production and to be able to carry their products to the interior of the country, and in this manner they can generate more earnings.

In this group: Guadalupe, Margarita, Angelica, Felipa, Lidia, Juana, Alicia, Carmen, Lourdes, Teresa, Cecilia, Irene, Martha, Lidia, Cinthia
