Las Hermosas Group
In this Group: Elva , Cecilia , Martina , Susana , Lorenza Patricia , Elsa , Rosalina Alberta , Silvia
This group is called Las Hermosas and is made up of eight indigenous women from the town of San Sebastián Ixcapa, a small community rich in gastronomy. One of the members of this group is Lorenza Patricia, 48, better known as Doña Paty. Paty makes and sells bread and other Mexican dishes. Normally she sells her food in a kindergarten located in her community, where she has been selling for 30 years.

Paty is a single mother. She comments that, thanks to the good profits she gets from her business, she managed to give her five children a good education. All of them are already married. She mentions that one of the characteristics for doing the work she does is to be very hygienic, to have good seasoning, and above all to be an active person.

What she most likes about her business making and selling bread is the aroma of the bread when it comes out of the oven. Besides, it is her biggest seller. On the other hand, Paty's biggest challenge is when she has to kill the chicken to make the shredded chicken for her tostadas, because she doesn't like to hurt animals.

Paty says that one of her most beautiful experiences in her business is that she has learned to be an independent woman, because she likes to work with her money and her profits. She also says that she believes she is special because, although she has had needs as a single mother, she always has the strength to achieve what she sets out to do.

Paty requested her loan to buy flour, eggs, lard, yeast, Royal brand baking powder, butter, and milk to make bread.

The other members of the group are Elva, Cecilia, Martina, and Susana, who all sell Mexican snacks; Elsa, who sells food; Rosalina Alberta, who sells beverages; and Silvia, who sells bread. They thank Vision Fund for helping all the mothers who never give up and who want to have the income to be successful.
