Grupo Solidario Juntas Podemos Group's story

Group name: Together We Can

The group is made up of three sisters. They sell vegetables in the local market of San Juan Sacatepequez.

Angelica R. G. sells condiments (spices). She started her business 20 years ago, selling door to door in the villages closest to their town and on Sundays she sold outside the market for the past 15 years. She found the opportunity to purchase a stand inside the market five years ago and now she has a steady client base to purchase her merchandise. She has 3 children, one is working and the others are in school. She is no longer together with her husband; she raised the kids herself with the help of her business. Her greatest dream is to have a larger stand from where to display a greater variety of ingredients and spices for sale.

Maria R. G. sells vegetables in the local market of San Juan. She has 3 children, one is independent. Her husband helps her with her business in his spare time. Her greatest dream is to have a second stand from where to sell vegetables.

Ana Alicia R. G. sells vegetables and basic grains of every day use. Her stand is also located in the local market. She has a young daughter. Her dream is to have more variety in the products she sells and to provide a better future for her daughter.
