Guerrero Oaxaca Group's story

This group is called 'Guerrero Oaxaca'. It is made up of ten hard-working women who have a desire to do well and grow their businesses. One of the members of this group is Teresa Emilia who is 55 years old. Her business is selling tamales and mole sauce which is used for making enchiladas. She sells wholesale and retail. She tells us that she has been selling tamales for 25 years and the business makes her good profits which enables her to provide her family with a better quality of life. She has five children: Laura, Maraina, Emili, Zamari and Ángel. They also help her to buy what she needs for making her tamales and mole sauce. What Teresa Emilia most enjoys about her business is cleaning the plantain leaves and grinding the dried chili for making her mole sauce. She requested this loan to buy ingredients for making her mole sauce and tamales: plantain leaves, dried chilis, tomatoes, onion, garlic, cloves, pepper, breadcrumbs and oil. The other members of this group are: Maria - who sells perfumes Modesta Edilberta - who sells chilis and seeds Abigail - who sells perfume Araceli - who sells clothing Alma - who sells clothing Guadalupe - who sells clothing Nancy - who sells telephones Evodia - who sells Mexican snacks Gabriela Patricia - who sells perfume All of the women are grateful to Fundación Realidad for the support that they have given them as it enables them to grow their businesses and provide their families with a better quality of life.
