Mujeres Trabajadoras De Sumpango Group's story

The group “Mujeres Trabajadoras” (Working Women) is represented by Sra. Sandra S.. She is 32 years, has two small children, and earns her living selling tortillas. Sandra is a hardworking woman as reflected by the effort and commitment she puts into her daily activities. She wakes up every morning at 5am to begin her work. Sandra has been selling tortillas for eight years, but now she needs capital to buy corn. In addition, she has started selling traditional clothing and needs capital to invest in this new venture.

Doña Rosa T. is another member of the group who sells breakfasts at a farm that employs more than 75 workers. She also makes aprons and sells them as a street vendor. Rosa is married and has five children. She shares her business with her sister Hilaria T., who also sells breakfasts at the same farm. Both of them seek to have opportunities to make progress. Doña Hilaria also sells traditional clothing.

They have been clients of FAPE for several years and have demonstrated that they are responsible and hardworking people. These ladies dream of contributing to their households and providing their children the opportunity to succeed.
