This group Virgen del Carmen is composed of twelve members, all of whom are hard-working people with the desire to improve themselves and to triumph in life.

They are natives of Pinotepa Nacional, where the chilena is danced, land of indigenous people.

One of the members of the group is Juliana, a hardworking, humble, happy, and talkative woman, who makes her living selling fish and bimbunuelos (a crispy wheel-shaped pastry). She tells us that she only sells bimbunuelos in December. The types of fish she sells include: sea bass, snapper, carp, clams, y crab. Juliana buys her fish by the kilo. Every third day she buys sixty kilos of assorted fish.

She tells us that she goes to sell with her husband Baltasar in neighboring towns. Baltasar leaves her in a town called Jicayan while he goes to sell in San Juan and Santiago. When he finishes, he passes through Jicayan and the two of them return to their house. Juliana has five children: Baltasar is twenty-two years old, Antonio is twenty, Victor is fifteen, Elena Edith is seventeen, and Oscar is fourteen. They also accompany their mother to sell when they have days off.

Juliana tells us that she sells all her fish in a single day, so her clients place orders. Since they recommend her, she occasionally gives them a fish so that they have enough left over for broth.

Juliana requested the loan in order to buy more fish to sell, including clams, crabs, sea bass, snapper, and carp. She tells us that she is content with her business and with all the blessings God has given her so that she can succeed in her business.

She is very grateful to the foundation for wanting to help hardworking people and to change their lives.
