Jicaro En Accion Group's story

The JICARO EN ACCION group has five members who all know each other well. Señor Arturo, leader of the group, earns his living by selling milk, firewood, and buying and selling livestock. His biggest customers live in the vicinity of Jicaro, Galán, and Valle. His business is very profitable and he has a good income from it.

Arturo is happy with the way his business is going. He plans to use the money from the loan to buy cows so he has milk and other products to sell.

The other members of the group are Melecia who sells tortillas, Deysi Elizabeth who has a sewing and tailoring business, Rosa Araceli who sells tortillas and soft drinks, and Mirna Lorena who has a mill and also sells firewood.
