Itacuan Group's story

This group is called "Itacuan," and it consists of eleven hard-working women who want to improve their quality of life and their businesses.

One of the members of this group is Señorita Dolores, who is 20 years old and sells food such as fried tacos, chicken empanadas, soft cheese, shrimp soup, beef stew, tripe soup with hooves, and other soups. She tell us that she has been selling food for three years since she considers it a good business. She is applying for the loan to purchase more ingredients to prepare food, such as dried chiles, tomatoes, onions, cheese, vegetables, garlic, oil, lard, soft cheese, beans, and cold meats.

The other members of the group are Carmen, who sells food; Maria del Carmen, who sells fish; Elizabeth Soledad, who sells tacos; Eufemia Ines, who sells chickens; Luisa, who sells chickens; Justina, who sells chickens; Araceli, who sells cheese; Heriberta Rafaela, who sells food; Laura Leticia, who sells meat, and Angela, who sells fruits and vegetables.

They give thanks to the foundation for the support that it has given them so that their lives and those of their families can change.
