Las Cenicientas Group's story

This group is made up of ten members who are indigenous Indians. What they most desire is to succeed in life and have a better future.

This group is called "Las Cenicientas" ("The Cinderellas"). The members decided on this name because of the story of Cinderella, who changed her life thanks to a fairy godmother, and because they will be changing their lives for the better thanks to the support of the Foundation.

The representative from this group is Señora Juana, who is 40 years old. She is married to Señor Andrés, with whom she has two children. One attends primary school, and the other secondary school.

Juana studied up to primary level, and very much enjoyed mathematics. She helps her son to do his homework as one of her dreams is for him to get a degree.

She asked for this loan for the purchase of thread, hoops, pins and ribbons. She works making embroidered napkins for sale. She very much enjoys her work as her customers buy in bulk, and when the people in her village have some kind of engagement, they buy tablecloths which earn her even more.

She is very content with things, as she is always able to sell her merchandise and hasn't had any problems with her customers.

The other members of the group are:

Maximina- works making tortillas.
Antelma- works making napkins.
Justina- works making tamales.
Lorenza- works making napkins.
Celiflora- works making tablecloths.
Antonia - works making napkins.
Florina- works making tablecloths.
Alicia- works making napkins.
Aurelia – works making tablecloths.

They give thanks to Fundacion Realidad for helping those who need it and for trusting in them.
