El Divino Niño Jesus Group's story

Antonia M. Gutiérrez is from a small town called Ometepec, which is located in the state of Guerrero. She worked for several years as a domestic servant taking care of a little girl. Antonia also has two small children whom she doesn’t get to spend much time with since she has to make a minimum wage so she can help her husband with the family’s expenses. Out of necessity, three years ago she started working as a street vendor selling chicken that she bought and then sold. Now she intends to have her own business so that she can take care of her 2 children and give them a better future via education, so that they can contribute to society as good citizens who are useful and capable. This is why she has requested a loan for her big dream—her own small chicken farm. She will start it by buying chickens, feed, and feeders for the chicks.

For this reason, Antonia M. G. has created a group of 13 people, who decided to use the group name “El Divino Niño J.” (The Divine Baby Jesus), to request a group loan from Fundación Realidad A.C.

The other people in the group are the following: Epifania L. M. – Buying and selling of agricultural products Monica D. Jesus H. – Fish sales Margarita M. L. – Embroidered blouse sales Julio D. L. C.
