Barrio Tepeyac Group
In this Group: Ocotlan, Rosario , Andrea, Gloria
This communal bank is named "Barrio Tepeyac" and it's comprised of four hardworking women with the strength to expand their businesses.
They come from a small village called El Cerro de la Esperanza. Going into the village there are a lot of papaya gardens and mango trees. Most of the men in Cerro de la Esperanza sow corn and papayas, and the women sell chicken, tamales and food.
One of the group members is Rosario, a hardworking and cheerful lady who has been selling chicken, cheese and bread for a year and a half.
Doña Chayo, as she is known to her fellow group members, tells us how she got her three businesses started and made them grow on a daily basis.
She says that at first she started to buy half a box of chicken and go out to sell it on the streets of her village. She saved her profits in order to buy supplies for baking bread, because she has known how to bake bread since she was 15. She was filled with joy to know that it would be another business and that she would get more profits so that she could improve her 7-year-old son Kevin's living conditions.
Doña Chayo tells us that on the third day of every week she makes cheese. She very much enjoys curdling the milk and putting salt in the curd so that her cheese gets enough, but not too much salt.
Doña Chayo will use the loan to purchase more supplies for baking bread, such as flour, milk, yeast, eggs, baking powder and butter.
She gives thanks to the Fundación for the support it has provided so that they can expand their businesses and improve their families' living conditions.
The other members of the group are:
Ocotlan, who sells antojitos (a typical Mexican snack);
Andrea, who sells perfumes;
Gloria, who sells groceries.
They give thanks to the Fundación for the help they have been given, because they wish to improve their community with more small businesses.
