Tututepec Los Almendros Group
In this Group: Eustiquia , Elizabeth, Aide , Catalina , Floriberta , Sandra , Everardo, Lucia, Irene
This group is called Tututepec Los Almendros and it’s composed of nine hardworking, humble people who are proud to be part of the Fundación and of their location. The members of this group are from the location of Tututepec which has a museum called Yuku Saa which in the Mixteco language means “hill of the bird.” The town is better known as Tutu. It’s on a high hill and when you arrive at the community you come upon a beautiful white sigh on the top of the hill that says “Viva Cristo Rey.” The sign was made by the people in the community thanking God for their location and their families. There are many lemon, papaya and chili fields and there’s a dam called “Presa de Río Verde” and an irrigation system.

One of the members of this group is Catalina, 29. She’s noted for being a cheerful, hardworking woman. She has been selling hand-made tortillas for five years.

Doña Cata, as she’s better known by her fellow group members, has two children she loves very much. Her children are called Emmanuel who is nine and Josué who is five years old. She feels very happy for all the support from the Fundación so that she can continue in business since she’s a single mother and has to work twice as hard to give her children a better life.

Doña Cata tells us that she used to work in a home cooking and doing laundry but thanks to support from the Fundación she now has her small business and is able to offer her children a better life and spend more time with them.

Doña Cata asked for the loan to buy more corn, logs and lime powder to make tortillas.

Doña Cata tells us that she rises at three in the morning to wash her corn and go to the mill. She returns from the mill, lights her griddle and makes breakfast for her children. She takes them to school and when she returns starts making tortillas to sell.

Doña Cata is grateful to the Fundación for helping single mothers who want to improve themselves and the lives of their children.

In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
