The "8 de enero" ["January 8"] group is made of of three hard-working, determined and enterprising people. One of them is Suyen del Carmen A. Áreas, who is 25 years old. She has operated a tortilla business for five years, and she also butchers pigs. She works together with her mother in both businesses, which is a great help to her, above all in supporting her four little children, for whom she would like to provide a better quality of life.

The other members of the group are Karla M. Aragon, age 30, who has sold cosmetics for one year, and Griselda Maudalena R. Solórzano, age 24, who has a small sales stand and sells soup.
