This group called “Las Comadres” is made up of fifteen indigenous, humble, working woman who want to improve their lives. The members are from Pinotepa Nacional, an area where people dance the Chilenas and where they speak Mixtec.
One of the members of the group is Librada Miverda, thirty-six, a cheerful and chatty woman. Her friends call her Mine and she has sold Herbalife products for the past three years.
She has a small stand near the hospital where she sells her products and also makes malted milkshakes, teas and yogurt. Mine tells us that what she likes most about her business is helping her customers have a better quality of life and good health.
She is happily married to Javier, thirty-six, and they have two children, Ada Lizabeth, thirteen, and Iitzad Iizbeth, sixteen. They are the reason she wants to get ahead and improve their quality of life. Mine is requesting the loan to buy more Herbalife products to sell wholesale and retail since her business is giving her good earnings. That way she can have more income to help her children and provide them with a better education. One of the things that makes her sad is that some of the people are suspicious of what she sells as if the products were bad for their health. She also tells us that she delivers her merchandise to customers’ homes and that she makes her malted milk shakes with oatmeal, natural Herbalife flavoring and ice.
She blends all in the blender, adds ice, blends again, and serves it with cinnamon for their enjoyment. Ones of the nice things about Mine is that she cares about people‘s health, both thin and heavy, so that their bodies feel well. Mine thanks the Foundation because with their assistance, her business grows every day and she can help people eat nutritiously.
