Doña Amelia Group
In this Group: Maria , Constancia , Amelia, Alma , Amelia , Josellesica , Silvia , Elodia , Paulina
This group is called "Doña Amelia" and is comprised of nine kind, working women who run different businesses. The members of the group live in a village called Camotinchan which has many green trees and a wide, beautiful river winding through it called "Los Tres" (because it has three streams).

Most of the men in the community grow corn, sesame, chili pepper, and tomato; and the women sell chicken, shoes and beef. In the culture of Camotinchan, during carnival the boys and girls dance in the streets in their community.

One of the members of this group is Mrs. Josellesica, a cheerful, hard-working woman who wants to help her family. She is known as Jessica among the group members and people in her communty. She sells Mexican snacks, gelatin, water, fresh fruit and sweets at the high school in her community. She says she has been selling there for two years, and before that she sold her goods at the kindergarten for thirteen years.

Doña Jessica, 32, is happily married to Ignacio, a humble, hard-working man who is a farmer. They have three children, Jonatan, 16, Javier, 13 and Alexander, 2, who are their greatest inspiration.

Jessica tells us that what she likes most about her business is cooking for the youngsters and treating them well. She says her workday is as follows: she takes her goods to the high school and when the students begin recess she sells them food and fruit. Her son, Javier, and her nephew, Daniel, help by attending to everyone more quickly so they can play a little before returning to class. What she enjoys most is feeling like she's the mother of all the youngsters.

She adds that the teachers support her as far as being able to sell at school, since there were two ladies vying for the business; but thanks to the teachers she was the one chosen. She is very content, and even moreso with the support of the foundation, which has allowed her to buy more merchandise.

The loan she is requesting is to buy more fruit and food ingredients such as dry chili pepper, green pepper, dough to make tortillas, and cheese.

The other members of the group are:

Constancia - who sells chicken.
Amelia - who sells meat.

Silvia - who sells Mexican snacks.
