Las Guadalupes De Jamiltepec Group's story

“Los Guadalupes de Jamiltepec” is a group located in an area where the majority of the people are Mixtec Indians. This group is named in honor of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Their town is named “Jamiltepec”. This group is made up of many hardworking individuals and they are known for this trait. Yesenia is a member of the group and was the one who invited the people to form the group called FRAC. She is married to Antonio and has three children that study in primary or secondary school. She makes drapes. She learned this skill from a course that she took. She also sells clothes such as blouses, bathing suits, pants, skirts, as well as other items. She is asking for a loan in order to buy more products as she has few products and needs a larger variety of things. She says that her business is good but there are times when the sales are slow. She would like to earn a little income in order to help her husband with expenses. She thanks God for life and FRAC for the loan that she is requesting. This group is made up of other responsible people that do other activities in order to support their families. They are: Juan Antonio: sells food, Marcelo: sells fruit, Yesenia: sells curtains and clothes, Eusebia: sells tortillas, Agustina: sells chicken, Yeni: sells shoes, Silvina: sells food, Irma: sells bread, Paula: sells groceries, Virginia: sells food, Araceli: sells food and shoes, Maria: sells clothes and Angela: sells drinks.
