Josefa Group's story

The "Josefa" group is made up of three hard-working and enterprising women.

One of them is Señora Josefa del Carmen, aged 48, who has had a food stall for the last four years. She started off by using some savings, and selling small pieces of chicken. Now she sells whole chickens. She is single, and has one grown son.

The other members are Martha, aged 23, who has had a grocery store for the last four years, and María who sells sandals, accessories and clothes.
