Unidas De San Antonio Group's story

The members of the Unidas de San Antonio committee are merchants. They home produce the merchandise they sell: vegetables (orchards), chickens, pigs, carts that they go out to sell their products in like rice, corn, manioc, eggs, milk, honey, seasonal fruit, etc.

Most of them have also managed to build a small stand in front of their homes where they display their products on the roadside.

All of them live in the same neighborhood where they also meet to discuss possible activities they can perform during the year.

One of the group members is Ana V. who sells a variety of products she herself makes at home with help from her husband who is a farmer.

She has several bee hives at home that produce honey for sale. She also raises chickens for egg production and has an orchard where she grows all kinds of vegetables; in addition she has dairy cows for milk production.

All of her products are sold downtown where she transports them from home to sell.

In this occasion she is asking for funds to buy building materials and supplies to make improvements on her animal pens; she also wants to invest in sanitation for them as well as in the purchase of nutritionally balanced animal feed.

In this group: Ana, Elida, Juaquina, Pastora*, Nazaria, Epifania, Isabel, Sonia, Gladys, Andrea*
