T.c. 11.78 Vista Hermosa Group's story

The group "Vista Hermosa" lives in the community of Las Rosas, located at the top of a ridge with a wide view of the surrounding region. This group has 7 members, (4 women and 3 men) who sell clothing and also raise domestic animals for sale. All of them own their own land and support their families, often by selling maize or hay for animal feed. Don Modesto is a leader in the group; he is 45, married and has 5 children, 3 of which depend on him. Don Modesto has raised sheep for 15 years and has valuable business experience. One of the difficulties in his trade is vaccinating the sheep before they fall sick, which he considers essential to raising healthy animals. This loan will allow him to buy a male sheep to father baby animals among his herd of females. Don Modesto owns his own home and seeks to grow his business to provide for his family and support his school age children. His wife assists him in the home, and also with planting and harvest activities. Other members of this group include:
1.-Cristina, who sells second hand clothes;
2.-Maria Asunción, who sells clothes in a market: (underwear, socks, necklaces);
3.-Angela, who runs a small store selling sweets and general food items;
4.-Alejandra, who raises sheep;
5.-Arnulfo, who runs a business selling sweets;
6.-Gabriel, who raises sheep.

In this group: Modesto, Cristina, Maria Asúncion, Angela, Alejandra, Arnulfo, Gabriel
