Las Azucenas De Barrio Group's story

This group is called “Las Azucenas del Barrio” (The Lilies of the Neighborhood) and consists of 11 hardworking and humble individuals.

One of the members of this group is Sra. Marisol, a hardworking woman who sells Mexican street food and cheeses. She says that she greatly enjoys her business because it generates good income. Therefore, she continues to work for the money. She enjoys preparing golden tacos, enchiladas, entomatadas, chicken empanadas, soft cheeses, and chorizo sausage. Marisol is requesting a loan to buy more ingredients such as corn for preparing tortillas, green chiles, dried chiles, tomatoes, onions, chicken, and vegetables.

The other members of the group are as follows: • Deddy sells cheeses. • Adelina Agustina sells nutritional club products. • Antonia Austreberta sells groceries. • Enedina sells clothing. • Alberta Lorenza sells perfumes. • María Magdalena sells clothing. • Leticia sells perfumes. • Emir Jonathan sells cheeses. (He is not in the photo.) • Epifanía sells natural products. (She is in the photo wearing a purple blouse, but her face is hidden.) • Guillermo sells kitchen ranges.

They would like to thank Fundación Realidad for the support that has been given to them so that they can move forward and fulfill their dreams. As a result, they will be able to improve their lives and their small businesses.
