San Sebastián Group's story

The group called "San Sebastián" consists of 11 women who are originally from the town of San Sebastián Ixcapa. The traditional dishes from this area include chicken and turkey with mole sauce.

One of the members of this group is Sra. Severina, better known as Doña Seve. She is 36 years of age. Doña Seve sells food and soft drinks from a small shop located in the community park. She is a single mother who says, thanks to her business, she is able to provide a good education for her children: Coral Guadalupe, Luz María, and José Antonio. They have supported her during the most difficult moments. Doña Seve mentions that she has a large number of customers, so her earnings have been very good. She decided to build a house so that she could leave an inheritance for her children. Thanks to her mother, she was given a shop where she could start her business and is currently selling food.

Doña Seve says that she considers herself to be a special person because she enjoys working and is not dependent on other people as she fulfills her dreams. She is requesting a loan in order to buy soft drinks and ingredients for preparing her dishes such as green chili peppers, dried chili peppers, onions, cheese, cold cuts, and oil. One of her wishes is for all single mothers to value themselves and strive for their dreams. She thanks Vision Fund for helping her with growing her business.
