El Granito Group's story

The Granito (Little Grain) group is newly formed. Its members are: Johana Cruz M., Denis Francisco García and Agustín Tercero T.. Mrs. M., 42, is group leader. She has sold dairy products like, cuajada (a cottage cheese-like cheese), cheese, milk and cream since 2005; she brings the merchandise from the north of the country. She started out selling just a few products but today she sells between 500 and 600 cuajadas per week because she distributes them along several aisles in the market. She states that this is possible thanks to the help she gets from her family since her husband and children work shoulder to shoulder with her. The other group members are: Denis Francisco García who has sold basic grains for the past 8 years and Agustín Tercero T. who sells clothing, especially socks, underwear, shorts, t-shirts, etc.

In this group: Johana Cruz, Denis Francisco, Agustin Tercero
