San Lorenzo Group's story

The San Lorenzo group is formed by 11 humble indigenous people who have the desire to make a success of their lives and give a better future to their families. The representative of the group is Felicitas, a simple but hardworking woman who speaks Mixteco and is proud of her roots. Felicitas is 26 years old and is happily married to Beremundo, a conscientious and humble man. Felicitas tells us that she has been working selling bread for five years as it seems to her a good business and it allows her to earn a good income. What she most likes about making bread is kneading the the flour with the eggs and she also enjoys baking it in the oven. As well as this, she makes clay pots of different sizes. She has a son, Cristian, who is four years old. She loves him very much and works hard to provide him with a better future and so that he is proud of her. She asked for this loan to buy ingredients to make the bread, such as flour, eggs, milk, baking powder, butter and yeast.

The other members of the group are: Raymundo, who works selling Mexican snacks; Juliana, who sells cold cuts; Donaciana, who sells bread, Mara Antonia, who sells ice creams; Yesenia, who sells sweets; and Carmen, Mariana, Sixta, Tomasa and Patricia, who sell napkins. They are grateful to the foundation for helping indigenous men and women to achieve their dreams of bettering their lives.
