Mi Pequeña Hacienda Group's story

Haydee Hermelinda is 47 years old and has a son. She is a member of the group "Mi Pequeña Hacienda". The group consists of eight members, who are neighbors in the district of Comas. Haydee Hermelinda has been selling vegetables for five years. She began as a street vendor when her son was two years old. She was alone and therefore she decided to start a business in order to cover the expenses of her young son. Now she rents a stall in a market near her home. One of her biggest desires is to buy and be the proprietor of her own stall to stop paying rent. She will invest the loan she received in buying vegetables at wholesale price. The person in the upper part of the photo is Sra. Yanet.
