Las Manzanas De Peña Group's story

This group decided to call themselves Las Manzanas de Peña (The Apples of Peña) because it's said they are as sweet as apples and because the community they live in is called Monte de Peña. From there they got the name Las Manzanas de Peña.

Susana Macedonia is the group Treasurer. She is 45 years old, is married and for five years has made handmade tortillas, which she takes to other communities to sell. She is asking for a loan to expand her business by buying some tortilla presses, two large comals (griddles for cooking tortillas) and hiring someone to help her because she cannot fill all her orders alone. With this loan her business will grow, and she will earn more money. For the future Susana is thinking of making improvements to her house.

In this group: Maria De Los Angeles, Margarita, Julia, Susana Macedonia, Maria, Rosalinda, Mabel, Brenda, Nazaria
