She works buying and selling seasonal fruit. She will use this loan to buy tamarind, mango, and jocote (a type of fruit). She can count on her daughter to help her sell her produce. She has developed her business with loans made to her by this institution and she has had 9 loan cycles with this institution. Another member is 44 year old Silvana, who weaves items such as tablecloths for large tables and small tables, square cloths, and round cloths, and much more variety.
