Dúo Mujeres De Xetzac Group's story

"Dúo Mujeres de Xetzac" ["Two Women of Xetzac"]. This duo includes Valentina, who is 51 years old and works selling clothing and shoes at the municipal market of Tecpan. She has dedicated herself to her business for years, and "thanks to God," she has expanded it quite a lot. Her husband works as a bus driver outside the city, and with the salary he earns he helps his wife to cover the household expenses. Thanks to his support, Valentina has been able to get ahead with her business.

Her dream is to be able to have a larger business to generate more earnings, and through this, to be able to send her children to the university. In the photograph, they are depicted at the small business of the other group member, for reasons of distance.

In this group: Nora Argelia, Valentina
