Ebenezer Group's story

This group is called “Ebenezer” and it’s made up of five humble people from a small town called “San Juan Bautista Lo de Soto” where you can admire nature because there are many green trees; the weather is hot. It’s a town where you can see children running in the streets playing completely free and with no violence.

One of the members of this group is Ignacio German, 49, who is noted for being a somewhat quiet, hardworking man. Don Ignacio, as he’s better known by his fellow members and neighbors, owns a taxi that he works every day of the week except when he’s planting corn transporting his neighbors in the community to the nearest city which is Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca.

He also tells us that he works farming corn. What he likes best about farming corn is that most seasons he gets good harvests and this makes him feel successful because he can have more profits and more corn.

Because Don Ignacio is diversified in his businesses, this time he asked for the loan to use in his taxi service. He will buy spare parts for the taxi. However, the loan will have an impact on both businesses because he will use profits from his taxi to plant corn.

He tells us that he’s very grateful to the Fundación for having opened doors to a new path to continue with his business and improve his and his community’s life.

The other group members are:

Julia- sells meat
Leticia- sells food
Gloria- pottery
Tomasa Dominga – sells cheese

They thank the Fundación for giving them the opportunity to stay in business to thus improve their lives.

In this group: Julia, Letcia, Gloria, Ignacio German, Tomasa Dominga
