Temaxcal Group's story
This Development Cooperative is named Temaxcal after the community where the members live. This group is located in the community of San M. Soyaltepec (Temaxcal) in the state of Oaxaca and is comprised of seven members. The group’s representative is Maria Trinidad E. R.. She is 51 years old, and completed three years of secondary school. She is married and the mother of a son and a daughter who are also married. Mary, as she has been known by her neighbors for more than 25 years, decided to start her own business selling tacos, cakes, and tamales. She also runs a grocery store from her home since she wants to help her husband with the household expenses and wants to give her children a better quality of life. She needs this loan to buy flour, coloring, corn, a variety of chili peppers, beans, rice, oil, butter, disposable goods, soft drinks, and candy. Mary tells us that she hopes that this investment provides her with good income because in the future, she wants to buy utensils for making her cakes. Maricela E.
