Liberacion Group
In this Group: Gelacia, Juana , Maria, Criselda, Efren, Hipolita Cytlaly
The Liberación Group is comprised of six humble people from San Francisco el Maguey, a very small town that is becoming known as “misery in the desert”. Before reaching the community, there is an arroyo (stream bed) called Tuzapa. In San Franciso de Maguey, there are approximately two hundred homes amid the many green trees. One of San Franciso de Maguey’s traditions is the cowboy dance, celebrated on the Day of the Dead. Men, both young and old, come out to dance in the streets of the community dressed in red suits and hats, and carrying canes. They dance to the music of wind instruments as the citizens accompany them, applauding each dance.

One of the members of the Liberación Group is Gelacia, a cheerful, talkative, and fun lady. Gelacia has been selling tortillas for eight years. She tells us that she has a tortilla called La Nina. She has two workers in the tortillería (tortilla shop) who operate the machines and wash the nixtamal (cooked maize). Gelacia also helps her employees by weighing the tortillas and selling them at the tortillería while they go to the community suburbs by motor cycle to sell more tortillas. She tells us that she is very happy with her work because it provides her with good profits that enable her to grow her business more and generate work. What she dislikes about her business is that the tortillería gets overheated and it’s very hot. As a result, she and her employees become very dehydrated.

She is happily married to Pedro who is sixty-six years old. They have seven children who are already married. Gelicia tells us that she will use the loan to purchase more corn, lime, and tortilla wrapping paper and also to repair the tortilla machine. She is very grateful to the foundation for helping working people who desire to improve their lives and their community.

A list of the other members follows:
Juana, who sells cold meats
Maria, who sells cold meats
Criselda, who sells meals
Efrén, who sells groceries
Hipólita Cytlaly, who sells clothing

They thank the foundation for helping all the people who wish to see a better future and a better Mexico for 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.
