Crucero De San Vicente 1 Group's story

This photo was taken in Mrs. Eleuteria Hernández’s business. She is the Treasurer of the CRUCERO DE SAN VICENTE I group which is located in San Vicente in Jilotepec, México state. In the photo we can see the women who form this group. She has sold comal (flat, earthenware griddle for making tortillas) tortillas for 10 years. She is asking for funds to buy another comal and more corn because the comal she owns doesn’t work too well anymore. Her customers comment that her tortillas are very good and the best quality sold in their location. She is 43 years old and only went to elementary school. She’s married and, even though she didn’t get a lot of schooling, she is very experienced in her work. She has a 20 year old daughter. She is motivated to continue working with dedication because she wants to use profits from her work to establish a good patrimony so that when she’s no longer able to work she won’t be a burden to her family.

In this group: Eleuteria, Nicolasa, Patricia, Juana Francisca, Erika, Araceli, Rosa Gloria, Margarita, Juliana Hernandez
