Cazadoras Group's story

This group is called “LAS CAZADORAS” (The Huntresses) and is located in the state of México. They decided on this name because legend has it that the place this town now sits on was once favorable for hunting and gathering during the Pre-Hispanic era, just like its name indicates. It is in Cerro del Chapulín and has 11 members.

One of the members is Mrs. Patricia González. She has three children who are 15, 11 and 3 years of age, respectively. Before starting her business she was exclusively a housewife but need and the desire to get ahead led her to seek new sources of income. With saving she had they decided to open a general store which has been her family’s support. Her dream is that her children have a better quality of life some day and that they go to school since she never had the opportunity to develop as a great professional.

With the loan the institution grants her she wants to acquire more merchandise so that her business will grow and someday she’ll be able to open a minisupermarket that will give her and her family tranquility.

In this group: Leticia, Patricia, Ines, Maria Concepcion, Samahantha Ivonne, Elizabeth, Veronica Teresa, Lucia, Irma Ines, Rita, Magaly
