La Sagrada Familia - El Tambo Group's story

Haydee, 49, is a member of the “La Sagrada Familia” (The Holy Family) communal bank located in El Tambo. In the photo she’s second from the left wearing a white and blue jacket. She’s a single mother and has worked very hard since she was very young to be able to move her two children forward succeeding in having them attending an institution of higher learning.

She is noted for being very tenacious and hardworking since she has a small desserts business (cakes, 'mazamorra' [made from purple corn], etc.) and starting very early she makes her purchases of ingredients and sells her products in the local market.

Haydee will use the loan she’s gotten to buy more ingredients because she sold out long ago and she has many customers that always make special requests.

In the upper right part of the photograph, Sr. Sofia is shown with a red sweater and Sra. Miluska with a black sweater.

In this group: Tania Rosa, Angela Gloria, Lesli Teresa, Haydee Mariluz, Jose Luis, Gladys, Miluska Lourdes, Sofia Elvira
