Fuego Group
In this Group: Maricela, Lisset, Adilene , Hermininia Bernarada , Blanca Estela , Wenceslada Carmela
This group, called Fuego (Fire), is made up of six hard-working and humble women who wish to improve their lives and the lives of their families. The members of this group are from Pinotepa Nacional, the land of progress and improvement. One tradition of the population is the fiesta of Semana Santa (Holy Week) during which the games come so that children can entertain themselves.

One of the members of this group is Señora Herminia Bernardita, a 42-year-old, hard-working, and happy woman. Doña Herminia, as she is better known by her friends in the group, makes a living selling tortilla chips, which she has done for five years. What she likes most about her business is to take good care of her customers, and she tells us that she really enjoys preparing the dough and making the tortilla chips. She says that she only makes pre-orders and on occasion sells them in her house, but she does not go out to sell in the streets of her community. She also has been making a living selling jellies and flans for three years, but she stopped making them four months ago because she has not had the resources to prepare her jellies. She is happily married to Señor Martín with whom she has two daughters who are already married; Lizeth and Adilene.

Doña Herminia asked for the loan in order to buy more firewood and corn for making tortilla chips. She tells us that she buys the firewood before the rainy season begins because during that time the firewood and the corn is very expensive. She says that she is very happy with the Foundation for helping her to improve her life more each day and for giving her the opportunity to continue with her business.

The other members of the group are:
Maricela - she makes a living selling cakes.
Lisset - she makes a living selling food.
Adilene - she makes a living selling perfume.
Blanca Estela - she makes a living selling Mexican snacks.
Wenceslada Carmela - she makes a living selling beef.

They give thanks to the Foundation for helping them to improve their lives and to make more profit and thus grow their business.
