Llenitas De Amor Group's story

This group is called “Llenitas de Amor” (Filled with Love) because they have a lot of love for their business. The group is located in the town of Mexicaltzino whose meaning derives from the tale that the eagle alighted here first and it means “Little México.” The group has 10 members.

Mrs. Silvia Vázquez D. is one of the members. She’s 34 years old, married and has four children who are 12, 10, 9 and 7 years of age. One of her children wants to be a Pilot and she wants to provide him with this career so she cares for her business with dedication investing in it and working every day.

She has been making and selling chicharrones (fried pork skin) for 12 years. She started out with a stand passed down from her mother since she taught her everything about the occupation. Now she has two stands measuring a meter and a half each. Her husband helps her in one of them on Saturdays and Sundays after working all week from Monday through Friday. She wants to provide careers to all her children so that they will have better life styles.

In this group: Guadalupe, Maria Eleazar, Massiel, Blanca Esthela, Zita Lilia, Perla, Maria, Eva, Silvia, Leticia
