This group is called Las Trabajadoras D. Tierra Blanca. They decided on this name since they consider themselves to be very hardworking and enterprising people. This is a description of Alicia, who is 24 and married to Sinforiano, with whom she has two children, Antonio and Marcos. Of these two, the eldest is in fourth graD. and the youngest is in his second year of preschool. She makes and sells typical Mexican snacks for a living and has had an internet café for five years now.

She says that she decided to start this business because she wanted to find a way to help her husband with household expenses, improve her quality of life, and have greater financial stability. She also wanted to ensure her family's future, asiD. from the fact that she makes good money from her business. She will use the loan she received to buy more ingredients, such as oil, salt, tomatoes, chilies, potatoes, onions, meat, chicken, and corn to continue making her delicious Mexican snacks.

The goal Alicia has set for herself is to make her business grow a lot. She wants to build a bigger location to better equip her internet café by buying chairs, three desks, and two more computers, and she also wants to install air conditioning. This will allow her to improve and increase her income.

She tells us that all of her fellow group members are responsible people who fulfill their obligations and like to work in order to better themselves and overcome any obstacle. As they've known each other for some time, she can say that they are people who repay their debts and do not cheat people who have placed their trust in them.

Alicia thanks FRAC and Kiva on behalf of herself and her family because, thanks to them, she will be able to change her life, since they will now have a better quality of life.

Some of Alicia's fellow group members are Feliscísima, Rosa, Teresa, Áurea, Braulia, Reyna, Rafaela, and Juana, who do different things for a living, such as selling clothing, groceries, food, corn, bread, tamales, and Mexican snacks.
