Doña Eva Group's story

The Doña Eva group is made up of four, hard-working women. One of them is Lesbia Antonia Gutiérrez D. who started selling bananas, corn on the cob and tamales in 1990. At the beginning, her sales were poor but gradually business improved. She is the mother of 12 children, 7 girls and 5 boys ranging from 21 to 1 year of age, for whom she works hard every day so that they can have a better future. She will use the funds to buy several of the items she sells. Her fellow group members are: Juana Francisca Gónzales who has sold beans, cigarettes and tortillas for the last 15 years and Fany J. P. who sells Zermat cosmetics and Julia Patricia L. who sells fruit in the market.
