El Tucán Group's story

The Tucan Group consists of three hardworking and enterprising people. One of them is Digmara who has had a tortilla store for seven years and has also sold firewood for one year. From the early hours in the morning, she prepares the stove and begins clapping the tortillas for that morning. At lunch and dinner she repeats this hard work. In the evenings, she grinds the corn.

She will invest the loan in mainly corn and firewood. The other members of the group are Luz who has sold vegetables for six years and Yaritza who has had a small grocery store for seven years.

In this group: Digmara, Yaritza, Luz Marina
