La Hacienda Group
In this Group: Luciana , Jovita, Heladia Yolanda , Miguelina , Alicia Elena, Tomás, Víctor, Beatris , Floripa , Ana Margarita
This group is called "La Hacienda" and is made up of ten hardworking women who are indigenous to Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca. The traditional garb of said city is the white blouse with special chaquira (beaded) embroidery, a long skirt with showy colors and matching scarf.

One of the members of this group is Ms. Beatris, 27, who earns a living selling ladies accessories and gifts which she has done for half a year. Fortunately during this time period she has always had excellent sales. Beatris comments that what she doesn't like about her sales spot is the location since she is not in a centralized area in her community. She comments that she gradually introduced various items to her lineup. First she purchased clothing and later ladies accessories. One of her first experiences in business was to realize that she is a woman capable of achieving what she sets out to do. One of the good things that has happened is to receive help from Kiva and Vision Fund since, with their support, she has been able to keep going in her business, and with their help she will be able to purchase more ladies accessories for selling retail.

She thanks the institutions for helping all the hardworking women who have dreams to realize, but who do not have sufficient resources to bring them into being.
