Los Repollitos Group's story

The group, Los Repollitos, is made up of three working members. One of them is Juana G. of 47 years old. 15 years ago, she began selling on a daily basis hot dogs, pastries, and puffs. She owns a stall and has two vendors that work for her. In addition, she sells her products to two schools, Bello Horizonte and Japan School, and also at the Oriental Market.

G. has seven children, three of whom are minors, a 15, 12, and 7 year-old. She will invest this credit in hot dogs, pastries, puffs, and Nicaraguan-style tamales, which she has been making on the weekends since December.

The other members of the group are Roberto Jose A., who has been selling fried plantain slices with cheese for over four years, and Jesenia del Carmen E., who sells cheese.
