The members make sacrifices and fight on a daily basis in order to provide a better future, different from the reality in which they lived. Currently the group has 15 members and all of them work in an environment of respect, solidarity and, above all, responsibility.
Hermelinda owns a small grocery store. She reports that she has many customers from her neighborhood and surrounding areas and there is a lot of demand for all kinds of products. She says that she would like to expand her store so that her business can keep on growing and her customers can be more comfortable. She says that everything she does is for the well-being of her family and of those who depend on her.
