La Guadalupana Group
In this Group: Guadalupe Claudia , Norma , Rosalia, Socorro, Dora, Jose , Rosa , Macrina
This group is called La Guadalupana and is made up of eight hard-working, unassuming, indigenous people.

The members of this group are from a small village called San Pedro Amuzgos which is located in Oaxaca, the land of embroidery. All the people in this town make embroidered goods: dresses,'huipiles' (traditional dresses) and embroidered robes, traditional clothing of the region. They tell us that, in the past, there were no threads for weaving so the men would grow cotton so that their wives could use the thread to weave. Nowadays, Amuzgos men also weave and embroider.

One of the members of this group is 42-year-old Socorro. Soco, as she is better known by her fellow group members, has a business selling Mexican snack food such as quesadillas, entomatadas, soups, fried tacos and chicken empanadas. She says that she used to sell 'paletas' (ice pops made from fresh fruit). She did this for seven years but stopped because she lacked the materials she needed to make her ice pops. She hasn't been making her delicious ice pops for four months.

Soco is happily married to José and the couple have two children: Juan Daniel and Irais Concepción. Their children are their biggest treasure. One of Soco's dreams is to re-open her ice pop business so that she can create more jobs in her community as she has carts from which to sell her products. She requested this loan to buy more machines for making ice pops. She would also like to be able to re-equip her premises.

Socorro is grateful to Fundación Realidad for the support that they give to all indigenous and hard-working women.

The other members of this group are:
Guadalupe Claudia - who makes and sells handicrafts
Rosalia - who sells sweet treats
Dora - who sells Internet access
Jose - who sells sweet treats
Rosa - who sells groceries
Macrina - who sells bread.

The members of the group thank Fundación Realidad for supporting hard-working and indigenous people.
