Pequeños Gigantes Group's story

This group is called “Pequeños Gigantes” (Little Giants) and it’s made up of six indigenous people from the city of Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, a place that’s rich in crafts. One of the crafts from this place is making bracelets and earrings out of cut glass.

One of the group members is Victoria who is noted for being a cheerful, humble, kind woman. She says that she works selling natural products, bracelets, earrings and necklaces and that she’s also been selling clothes for three years.

She relates that she obtained her business thanks to the Fundación because with their help she bought natural products and with her profits she was able to buy earrings and bracelets and from profits from the bracelets and earrings she bought clothes to sell. She’s very happy that she’s been able to expand her business as time has gone by. She says that she goes to neighboring communities to offer her merchandise and that she sells it in installments since most of her customers are people of low income.

One of the nicest things that have happened to her is being able to have her business and to be able to rely on Fundación Realidad because with their help she will buy more natural products to sell at wholesale and retail. She thanks the Fundación for helping humble, low income people.

The other group members are:

Yolanda Avilania- sells shoes.
Leticia- sells clothes.
Jesús Felipe- sells shoes
Leonardo Javier- sells fruit and vegetables.
Baltazar Teodoro- sells clothes.

All of them thank the Fundación for helping all working people.

In this group: Yolanda Avilania, Leticia, Victoria, Jesús Felipe, Leonardo Javier, Baltazar Teodoro
