Mujeres De Bella Vista B. Patzite Group's story

Leocadia Marcelina A. I., 38, is a native of the Paraje Bella Vista community of the Patzite neighborhood of Momostenango. She is currently engaged in the business of selling food. She mentions that she has been doing this kind of work for a long time. She and her children carry out this work, in which she has succeeded. As a result she has managed to pay for the education of her children, as well as for their food and medicines. She had the idea of creating this group of women, so that they could succeed like she did. She managed to get 10 women to join 12 years ago, and they have come to know each other. These women perform a variety of occupations, such as: selling pastries, selling spare parts, and selling grocery items. They have approached the office of Agencia ASDIR in Pologua, Momostenango, requesting a loan to expand the capital of their businesses.
