A loan of $5,600 helped a member to buy chicken and grocery merchandise to sell.

La Buchicata Group's story

Gladis Alicia, who makes a living selling food, is a new person who became part of this group.

This group's representative is María de la Paz, a happy, nice, hardworking, and above all, very humble, woman. Ms. Mari, as she is better known, tells us that she has been making a living selling bread, cheese, meat enchiladas, butchered chicken, and farm eggs for ten years. She tells us that what she likes most about her business is attending to people and giving them the gift of a smile to make their lives happier. Ms. Mari says that formerly she used to sell grocery merchandise but for health reasons had to leave the city and close her grocery shop. When she returned she began to sell eggs, meat enchiladas, and cheese. With her earnings she bought a chicken to sell. She sells chicken in her home: she takes a table out in the corridor and sits down to sell.

She asked for a loan to buy more chicken to sell since she considers it to be a good business. Also, she's going to invest it in the purchase of grocery merchandise since she would like to open her store again.

She is thankful for the foundation for the support they give to all the hardworking, humble women.
