Flor De Maria Group's story

The “Flor de María” solidarity group is composed of four people: three women and one man. All are hardworking and tenacious and know each other very well. The group is located in the village of El Jobo, Nacaome jurisdiction, Valle Department.

Javier sells items of popular consumption in his home-based grocery store. He’s been in this occupation for several years. Javier is a likeable, kind, responsible and, above all, respectful person. His customers give him very good references as a person, as a friend and as a merchant.

Javier stocks all the basic items a family needs in his store like: groceries in general, basic grains, products derived from milk, cured meats, soft-drinks, all types of meat, chicken, water, cosmetics and personal hygiene items.

The other group members are: Ana Mirian who sells snacks at the Agricultural School, Gloria Araceli who sells tortillas and Ramona who extracts and sells building materials. One of their wishes is to see their businesses grow and to provide better support for their children and families.

In this group: Javier, Ramona, Gloria Aracely, Ana Mirian
