Stars Of Santiago Group's story

According to the customs and beliefs of our people, there is great respect for and devotion to the "Tata Santiago" (Father Santiago) figure, a Catholic religious idol known for the miracles he performed at the request of his followers. For that reason, "Stars of Santiago" is the name that these eighteen women have chosen to christen their association. For four years they have worked within the organization, always responsibly and with great devotion to their patron saint, who blesses them and brings success to their various activities, such as making military clothing, creating miniature handicrafts, and business in general.

All of these women need money, mainly to purchase raw materials in the case of those who make clothing or crafts. Those engaged in business in general need to travel to other regions in search of merchandise with a strong supply that will be profitable for their interests.

In this group: Shirley Silvia, Juana Maria, Benita, Isabel, Antonia, Bertha , Rufina, Aida, Enrriqueta, Veronica, Elisa Eugenia, Flora, Nora, Francisca, Exalta, Ester, Gregoria*, Grover
