Dúo Sembradoras De San Mateo Group's story

Maria Asuncion is the leader of this group. She has worked in agriculture for several years (growing green beans, tomatoes, and peas).

Maria Asuncion farms on land not far from her house. She is well known for her business. She delivers orders to a factory that exports her products and she also sells outside her house.

Thanks to the profits she has earned from her crops, she has been able to start another business, which is selling typical clothing. She has a goal of opening a shop where she can sell her vegetables and typical clothing.

At this time, Maria Asuncion plans to buy supplies and merchandise to be able to grow tomatoes and green beans, because she wants to take advantage of the rainy season, which is about to end.

In this group: Maria Asuncion, Gladys Heliodora
