Dúo Sajcavilla Group's story

The Sajcavilla duo was formed by Jennifer Elizabeth and its representative is Lilian Elizabeth, 49 years old, from the municipality of San Juan Sacatepequez.

For twelve years, Lilian Elizabeth has worked making and selling cakes, and also gelatin, which she makes in her house and then travels to sell in the market in her community. But, mostly, Lilian works to order.

By working in sales, she got the opportunity to begin a new business, which consists of selling natural alternative medicines, of the Herbax brand and others. In both businesses, Lilian has seen a very positive benefit in income as well as expansion of her products. For this, it is necessary to have enough capital to have the items most needed by her customers. Her spouse helps her with the medicine sales. He goes out as a street vendor to make sales. Lilian Elizabeth's wish is to become a distributor in her community, offering a natural alternative for her customers' health benefit, and also to continue achieving successes at the side of her family and her spouse.
