This group called El Angel is made up of 10 hardworking and modest indigenous people from a small town named Mancuernas, Oaxaca. The "corrido" [traditional ballad] is one of the most common forms of music heard in the community. Some of the dances are "Las Mascaritas," "Los Tejorones," "La Tortuga," and "El Fandango de Palitos."

Ariheyi, better known as Ary, is one of the members of this group. She is known for being a kind and somewhat quiet, but very hardworking, person. She tells us she has worked selling sheep for three years. What she likes most about her business is raising her lambs. She buys them young to raise and sell. She says this business gives her good profits, and she wants to expand it in the future. She has a small corral at her house where she keeps her lambs.

She also has made and sold chorizo for five years. What she likes most about that business is preparing the meat and the chili pepper to make the chorizo.

One of her dreams is to expand her business to give her three-year-old little daughter a better life and a better education.

She requested the loan to buy more lambs to sell wholesale and retail.

The other members of the group are the following: Lucila sells meat, Salustia sells clothing, Artemio sells livestock, Eliodora Margarita sells food, Regina sells beverages, Sandra Norberta sells food, Evodia sells food, Amada Mauricia sells food, and Elizabeth sells sweets. They thank the foundation for helping all the humble people who want to improve their quality of life.
