Los Comerciantes De Xeabaj Group's story

Tomasa is a 55-year-old widow. She did not have the opportunity to study, and she has no children. She makes a living planting, growing and selling flowers. She began this business with the help of her mother, and thus far has 40 years of experience.

She gets a group together so she can buy seeds and in this way plant more flowers, to improve her income. She also hopes to have a chicken farm. The other group members do craftwork, produce woven belts and clothing articles, grow and sell fruit, and grow flowers.

In this group: Diego, Margarita, Tomasa, Juana, Felipa, Maria
