The “Tututepec los Tulipanes” (The Tulips of Tututepec) comunal bank is comprised of ten hard-working and humble women who devote themselves to different business activities. They are from a small town called Tututepec, which is rich in culture and traditions. One of their dances is the Fandango de Varitas where the music is played with the violin, guitar, a singer, a “cajón” (a box-shaped percussion instrument played by slapping the front face with the hands), and the “charrasca” (percussive derivative of African instrument that makes a guttural sound).

The songs that they play are “La Garza” (The Heron) and “La Pescadora y La Indita” (The Fisherman and the Little Indigenious Lady). The boys step aside and the girls dance in the streets of the community with scarves. The people of “tutu” (what they call Tututepec) are proud of their community, their culture, and their traditions. The dances gladden the heart, and the children have fun.

Maria, better known as Mari, is one of the members of this group. She is a happy and hard-working woman. Mari has been making tortillas by hand for ten years. She tells us that she feels proud of her work. This is because she does it with love, and it gives her good earnings. She is also proud of the Fundación for helping good and hard-working people.

Mari tells us that she also sells typical Mexican snacks like fried tacos, shredded pork tostadas, “sopes”(fried tortilla topped with refried beans, onion and hot sauce), and quesadillas. What she likes most about her business is lovingly preparing her food and treating her customers with respect.

Mari is 36 years old and happily married to 40 year old Abraham. They have three daughters. Yesenia is 16, Dulce Iveth is 13, and Sitlali Lizbeth is 10.

Mari asked for her loan to buy more corn, lime powder, and firewood to make torillas. She thanks the Fundación for helping women from small towns who have the desire to triumph.
