Toronjil Huazolo Group's story

This group is named Toronjil Huazolo. The members decided to give it this name because it is the name of their settlement. There are eleven members who have to meet weekly to make their payments. They have a representative and a committee that governs them. This group is located in the city of Santa María Huazolotitln in the state of Oaxaca.

Adelfa is part of the group's committee. She completed a Bachelor's degree and is 32 years old. She sells footwear by catalog, and she asked for the loan because she is going to invest it in the purchase and sale of traditional clothing. Her customers have been asking her for traditional clothing such as necklaces because she used to sell traditional clothing before she sold shoes. She is a lady who is very friendly with her customers. Adelfa's dream is to buy traditional clothing and set up a store so she can work only in sales of traditional clothing.

The group thanks Fundación Realidad for the support they have all been given to make their dreams reality.

The other members are: Josefina: she sells blouses. María: she sells bread. Nacariza: she sells blouses. Camelia: she sells snacks. Margarita: she sells necklaces. Acacia: she sells cakes. Modesta sells dresses. Magdalena: she sells dresses. Aurora: she sells handcrafts. Liliana: buys and sells clothing.

The group thanks Fundación Realidad for the support they have all been given to get ahead and help their children.
