Juancito Pinto Group's story

In the area of Villa Tejada you will find the center called Villa Tejada. It belongs to a communal association called "Juancito Pinto", formed by twelve members who have worked together at Pro-Mujer for more than a year. Mostly married, they affirm that the incomes of their husbands do not cover the daily expenses of their families, and that therefore they were seen in need of seeking out a profitable activity to be able to support their partners economically. The group activities are diverse; they work at the bakery, selling cosmetics by catalog, taking trips to nearby towns carrying winter clothes for later sales, and they also sell building material, amongst other things. The association Juancito Pinto wants to buy a greater quantity of merchandise to be able to increase their sales.

In this group: Elizabeth, Rosario Ingrid, Bethzabet, Milenka, Graciela Eva, Margarita Trinidad, Maria Victoria, Patty, Edwin Santos, Cristina, Sabina Hilda, Candelaria
