Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The group " Mujeres Emprendedoras" (Hardworking Women) is comprised of (forgive the repetition) 3 working women, who are enterprising and share a vision. One of these is Andrea Ivania A., who is 29 years old and has been selling spices along with her husband since 1999. Spices have been in great demand since ancient times for their medical and culinary uses. The spices they sell include: cinnamon, cloves, pepper, curry, coriander, oregano, basil, bay leaf, saffron, anise, chives, mint, lemon grass, bay leaf, ginger, mint, mustard, paprika, parsley, aloe vera, rosemary, thyme and vanilla. What Andrea most desires is to have a stand in the market so that she can stop selling in the streets because it is dangerous. The other members are Josefa Dolores R. L., who is 47 years old and sells fruits such as: oranges, mandarin oranges, watermelons, melons, mangos and plums among others, and Isadora del Socorro L. who is 27 years old and sells spices.

In this group: Andrea Ivania , Josefa Dolores , Isadora Del Socorro
