Por La Gracia De Dios Group's story

Johana Isabel Cortez Morales, María Mercedes R. García, and Yadira Elizabeth Cortez Morales are three cheerful, enterprising, and hard-working women. They comprise the Por la Gracia de Dios (By the Grace of God) group.

Mrs. Cortez Morales is the coordinator of the group. She says that she sells a little bit of everything from “pupusas” (flatbread stuffed with meat, cheese, or vegetables) to beans, cigarettes, sweets, and yogurt.

She started this type of work at a young age because she helped her mother sell. She said with laughter that her dream is to be a millionaire.

One of her colleagues in the group is María R. García. She has had a small mini market for six years. Their other colleague, Jadira Elizabeth Cortez Morales, sells cloths.

In this group: María Mercedes , María Del Carmen , Ileana Angelica
