Doña Amelia Group's story

This group is called “Doña Amelia.” Its members decided to call it that because they identify with their group. It has ten members who wish to improve day to day since each has their own business, thanks to God. The group member is Amelia who has been selling meat for thirty years. She tells us that what she likes best about her work is slaughtering the beef and butchering the meat. She is happily married to Roberto who supports her efforts and also sells meat. Doña Ame, like people in her community call her, is a hardworking, humble, tenacious woman who goes out to neighboring towns to sell when sales drop in her own location. She has a son who helps her kill the steers and helps her tend to customers. She requested the loan to buy knives and a butcher’s block. The other group members are: Teofila-sells Mexican fast food snacks. María-sells clothes. Constancia-sells chickens. Elías-sells bread. Alma- sells Mexican fast food snacks. Amelia- sells meat. Josellesica- sells food. Silvia- sells chickens. Elodia- sells cheese. She thanks the Fundación for the support it’s given her to get ahead and succeed in life and continue reaching her dreams.
