Las Vecinas Group's story

This group is called "Las Vecinas" (The Neighbors). It is made up of 10 customers.

One member of this group is Noemí. She is 37 years old and has two sons, who are 14 and 12, and a 10-year-old daughter. She tells us that about seven years ago she decided to start her business selling sweets. She began it in the State of Mexico, and thanks to her family's support her business has grown. Unfortunately she and her husband separated, but now her earnings help her to cover the family's expenses, so she is not as worried about providing for her children and hopes to help them go to college in the future.

In this group: Juana, Margarita Leobarda, Rufina, Daniela, Lucia*, Griselda, Erika, Noemi, Enriqueta, Celene
