Campanitas De Oro Group's story

This group is called the ‘Golden Bells,’ it is made up of nine hardworking people. They are originally from the city of Santiago Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca whose most representative dance is the chilena.

One of the members of this group is Mrs. Emiliana, she is 35 years old and works making and selling pies, cakes and king cakes. At first Emiliana sold dinners and chickens in her home with the help of Vision Fund (FRAC) and with her earnings she started selling pies. Some time later, her customers asked for cakes and Mrs. Emiliana noticed that they were delicious and her customers demanded more cakes and to sell them by the slice since they would buy from her each day. With the loan, Emiliana will buy more ingredients to make pies and cakes like flour, egg, milk, butter, fruits and meringue.

She is grateful to the foundation for helping her keep her small business growing.
