Rositas Del Ocho Group's story

This group is called Rositas del Ocho because they come from from the neighborhood "Ocho" and roses are the ladies' favorite plant. They're located in Ixtlahuaca D. Rayón Mexico. It's a place where people go to reach their objectives by making use of the opportunities offered to them. This group consists of 11 members.

One of the members is Epifanía S. Domínguez. She's 48-years-old and she only studied through elementary school. She says that she was unfortunately not able to continue studying because of the bad economy that her parents experienced at the time and they had to count on the whole family. She raises hogs. She's married and has a 20-year-old son who continues to study. Each day she looks for a way to help her husband and cover her basic expenses. Epifanía sells her livestock in Ixtlahuaca. She began this business 7 years ago hoping that it would be an additional source of income that would help her family's finances. She's liked raising her animals because she knows that the income helps her son stay in school.

At this moment she feels very happy because she has the opportunity to buy supplies to continue fattening her hogs and sell them for a higher price. She also hopes that with the loan she will begin to grow her business and eventually build a bigger corral.

In this group: Carmela, Elizabeth, Epifania, Eldida, Gloria, Karina, Laura, Maria, Maria Guadalupe, Maria Del Pilar, Silvia
