Sahuaro Group's story

Sra. María del Carmen is married to Sr. Adán. They have six children, five of whom are married and one still under their responsibility. María buys and sells farm-raised chickens that she offers butchered. She has been working for three years and three months and says that she has done well enough to move her family forward. María dedicates herself to her business in order to generate income and help her husband with the household expenses to provide what they need. In this type of business, she is excited about being able to earn her own income so that she can provide her small family with the most important necessities.
