Yukuyoo Group's story

The name of the Yukuyoo Group comes from the Mixteca language and means "liana-covered hill." The majority of the inhabitants are indigenous peoples who work the land or make traditional handicrafts for a living.

The group representative is Ms. Analidia C. D. L. C., who has a live-in partner, Mr. Silverio Garcia, a farmer. They have two children who currently attend elementary school. Analidia produces handmaD. napkins in different sizes and from different types of thread, a traditional craftwork that is well-known in this region. She states that sales are good, which is helping her cover the family expenses. Nevertheless, she now has an order to fill, so she is requesting this loan. She will make the repayments with her profits. Her greatest wish is for her children to get an education, and she hopes to set up a handicraft store in her community.

The following are the rest of the group members and their respective businesses:
Flora M.: sells street food
