Anahí Group's story

This group is called Anahi and is made up of seven people from a small town in the state of Oaxaca called El Ciruelo where the traditional Day of the Dead is celebrated with the so-called Dance of the Devils.

One of the members of this group is Ángela, aged 57 years old, who for the last nine years has made her living producing and selling cheese. She says that when she was young, she already knew how to produce this dairy product as her mother worked in the same activity and it was her who taught her everything to do with preparation. Ángela is happily married with Dionisio who goes to the fields to milk the cows in the morning so that the milk is ready so that Ángela can make her cheese. Ángela believes that the characteristics a person must have to work in this type of business is to be a friendly and hygienic person with good sense of taste so as not to overpower the cheese with salt, and above all, to be an honest person with customers as most of the best buyers are humble people. One of her greatest sources of satisfaction is that relying on the help of Vision Found, because with its support, she will be able to buy cheeseboards and a mill to make cheeses and therefore be able to continue with her business.

The other members in this group are:

Juana – sells cheese for a living.
Cruz - sells food for a living.
Alfredo - sells scrap iron for a living.
