Chicas Sexis Group's story

The group “Chicas Sexis” (Sexy Ladies) is composed of three hardworking women who put a lot of effort and commitment into their work.

Doña Josefa F. is the group coordinator (seen in the photograph seated in the middle). She is a 57 year old woman who possesses a cheerful disposition and a youthful spirit. She has an established business, which has been operation for the past 30 years, selling clothes in the Plaza Ana María. She started working for a friend who had a similar business, but later decided to start her own clothing shop.

Today her business has grown tremendously and she intends to move forward with the help of her husband, regardless of any obstacles they encounter along the way. Her loan will be used to buy school uniforms since the patron saint holidays are approaching and demand is high during that time of year. She will also buy shirts and dress slacks for men.

Her biggest dreams are to make home improvement repairs (the roof of her house was damaged) and see her son finish his college studies.

Pastora V. has a vending post where she has been selling perishable goods (food, dairy, and refrigerated products) for the past 16 years. María P. has been selling clothes in the Roberto Huembes Market for 18 years.

In this group: Josefa Ileana , Pastora , María Leticia
