Macetitas Group's story

This group is called Macetitas, because it focuses on making clay pots. It is located in Mexico in the state of Puebla, very close to the border with the state of Morelos. The group consists of nine members. Camila A. is a member of the group. She is 48 years old and only has a grade school education. She makes clay pots. She has dedicated herself to pottery for 15 years, as it is a family tradition. Her mom taught her the trade when she lost her job as a domestic servant. She lives with her mom and her brother. She asks for the loan to be able to buy raw materials to use to make pots. She sells the pots without kilning them, and as she has no vehicle to transport her product, she only sells to her neighbors. Her dream is to construct a room with plate to be able to store her pots as the rainy season is approaching. The name of the members of the group and their job are: IGNACIA S. Pottery MARIA MERBI G.
