La Parada De Los Lobos Group's story

This Mexican community is characterized by the extensive cultivation of potatoes. It is not unusual for people in other communities to know that the region is rich in nutrients. Thanks to the type of soil, the crops and vegetation in general enjoy a special beauty and leafiness. It is worth noting that the community has origins in the Mazahua culture and its inhabitants are carriers of the language that has been spoken in this area for many centuries so that it is important that it is transmitted from generation to generation.

Adrián lives in this community and is part of a group called La Parada de los Lobos. He is a very friendly person and is always smiling. His goal is very clear: to have a job that allows him to offer the best quality of life to his wife and young daughter who doesn't go to school yet. In this way, he works in the fields the majority of the time and, also, sometimes is contracted to work in construction. Meanwhile, Matilde, his wife, raises different animals, which she gets when they are very young and has them for their whole development. One of the principal objectives is to grow her business and that the animals have an optimal growth so that they, in this way, have healthy babies.

To improve these businesses, they plan to use the opportunity of the loan to purchase 10 sheep that the will be able to feed thanks to the extensive grass that grows in the community's fields.

It will also help the community since the animals will be purchased from indigenous people. "I already have the corral that will be used for my sheep, I know that they will be very comfortable and, so, will grow without problems," said Adrián, who is very happy because without the loan, he never would have been able to get the funds to improve his business.

The other members of the group are Cristina, who will invest the loan in a grocery store; Damián, in his taxi; and Maurilio in sheep.
