Estrella Dorada Group's story

The high production of sugarcane and rubber as an alternative product is one of the sources of employment in this area, located between hills which provide a great view at sunrise and sunset. The Estrella Dorada ("Golden Star") group originated in this place. The members chose this name because they liked the stars and the panorama which can be seen on clear nights. The people who make up this group are: Cinthia, Elizabeth - Clothing Sales Francisca - Embroidered Napkins Juan - Soft Drinks and "Sabrita" Snacks Rosario - Candy Sales Rosina - Grocery Store Rosina is known by people in the community as Rosa. She is 59 years old and is married to Edgardo. Only one of their children still depends on them financially and is studying at university. Rosa is backed by her 20 years of experience in grocery sales. She started with a neighborhood store. Thanks to her store and her earnings, she now has a grocery store where she has also allocated previous loans. With these small investments, she has been able to buy beans, sugar, soup, oil, eggs, and toilet paper to continue serving clients, usually from 7:00am until 8:00pm. "I feel satisfied with what I have accomplished with my little grocery store." These are Rosa's words. She has also been able to continue taking care of her family and the household duties while supporting her husband with the household expenses and those of their child's education. She says that satisfying her clients' need for basic products is the best part. Over 20 years, she has seen several generations. Thanks to her clients, her care, the variety of products, good prices, and customer service, she still has her store. *The photograph was taken two blocks away from the sugar factory near the community. Rosa is wearing a black shirt and a navy blue skirt.
