La Posta Group's story

This group is called "La Posta." The reason why the group chose this name is that their neighborhood is called "La Posta," and it would be easier to recognize them with this name. All of them live in Pinotepa, Nacional, Oaxaca.

Ángela R. L. is the representative of the "La Posta" group. She is a single mother with 3 children: Omar Emmanuel Cortes Luís, age 22, who is studying at the Technological Institute; Guadalupe Gisela Cortes R., age 19, who has finished secondary school; and Israel Cortes R., age 18, who has studied up to the third year of high school. Angélica works selling food, with the aim of improving her quality of life and that of her family. This business has motivated to work for a long time, since it has allowed her to provide food for her children and let them continue studying.

She invested her loan in buying supplies and ingredients for preparing food, such as chicken, meat, eggs, tomatoes, salt, etc. She works in a kitchen to sell her food; she works there because it is a good place and she thinks selling food is a good business, since it gives her higher earnings. She is also motivated to work in this field because this income helps her family get ahead.

Angélica reports that she is very happy working with her fellow members of "La Posta," because they are hard-working and honest, and all of them want to improve their lives.
