San José Mar De Sueños Group
In this Group: Atilano, Estanislao , Erika Lorena , Miguel Ángel
This group is called San José Mar de Sueños (San Jose Sea of Dreams). It is made up of four humble people born in a small town named San Jose del Progreso where the majority of people work growing lemons.

One of the members is Erika Lorena who works selling handicrafts like embroidered blouses, woven napkins, bags and handmade earrings. She has done this for three years. Doña Erika says that what she likes most about her business is to have her shop stocked with handicrafts and to have her customers' orders ready on time so that they are satisfied with her service. She says that one of the reasons that she considers herself a special person is that she loves to achieve her dreams and especially that she likes to work to get ahead. In accordance with her own words, the characteristics that a person who does her work must have are being cheerful and responsible since she has to be sure that her orders are ready on time. One of her dreams is to enlarge her shop and sell handicrafts from other places, not just from her community. Erika Lorena requested her loan to buy more handicrafts to sell both wholesale and retail.

The other members of the group are:

Atilano, who works in the sale of goods for the home,
Estanislao, who works selling construction materials, and
Miguel Ángel, who sells flowers.

They give thanks to Vision Fund for helping working women and men who want to get ahead.
