Duo Las Margaritas 3 Group's story

Dúo las Margaritas de San Bartolo

For over 11 years, María Transita, a member of this duo, has sold vegetables, fruits, and basic grains from her home. Known to her neighbors and customers as Concha, she is requesting a loan to stock her business with more vegetables, fruits, and basic grains. Her goal is to always offer fresh fruits and vegetables, which requires more business capital daily, since fruits and vegetables are very expensive. Corn, which she sells to local women who make tortillas, is also very expensive. She leaves for the capital very early to buy products and returns to her business by 10 AM so that her customers can have their vegetables in time for breakfast.

In this group: Maria Transita , Zoila Edina
