El Diamante 13 Group's story

The jobs that are most common in a certain community in Veracruz are: growing sugar cane and fishing. They are the main producers, on a national level, of both products.

Flora is a member of the group called "El diamante 13" and all its members know her simply as Flor. For the last eight years she has earned a living selling bread, both locally and in the surrounding area.

With her earnings, she started to sell sandals. At first she only sold 10 pairs a week, but she currently sells 20-30 pairs and sometimes even more.

Furthermore, the loans have been useful as she was able to buy a motorbike with which to deliver the bread. With the new loan she will be able to buy bread, different types of sandals and animal food as she has decided to start breeding pigs.
