This group is named Sini Titi San Andrés and is made up of ten hardworking and modest people, storekeepers. One of the members of this group is Margarita, a hardworking and modest 60-year-old woman. She tells us that for seven years she has worked selling curative herbs and Mexican snacks and tamales.

She is a single mother. She says that since she became single she feels better and with more strength, because she has been able to manage on her own by herself and realize that she matters a lot as a woman. She considers herself a better worker with the strength to continue growing with her businesses, such as selling food and herbs. She has a son who also works selling curative herbs. He tells us that he is very proud of his mother because she is a hardworking and modest woman.
