Las Bugambilias Group's story

María Anabel is 39 years old and married to Sr. Baltasar, who is a teacher. They are happily married and have four children: Jonathan is 20 and studying medicine, Juan Manuel is 18 and also studying medicine, Jaret is 16 and in the first year of high school, and Jamileth is 12 and in the sixth grade.

Anabel is a merchant who has a business of selling butchered chickens. She says that her sales depend on the number of chickens that are slaughtered. For example, in a good season, she wills sell two cases of chickens, which is how they are sold. Each case contains 10 chickens, which means that she can sell nearly 20 chickens. When sales are low, she sells anywhere between 12 and 15 chickens per day. Anabel has 10 years of experience in this business and wants to invest her loan in more cases of chickens. Thanks to her earnings, her children never lack anything. One of her greatest wishes is to see her children press forward and finish their higher education.

Anabel joined the group “Las Bugambilias”, which consists of eight women and two men who are dedicated to their work. With effort, dedication, and responsibility, they have been able to move forward on behalf of their families. Listed below are the members and each of their business activities: • Eduardo sells food. • Maricruz Ericka sells bread. • Genoveva sells tamales and “atole” (a warm beverage made with cornmeal). • Balbina has a trendy clothing business. • María Anabel sells chickens. • Ernestina sells plastics. • Aida sells clothing. • Jorge Luis manages a taxi. • Ada Iris sells food. • Mercedes sells groceries.
