La Cabañita Group's story

The Cabañita group is made up of 12 members; all hardworking women who struggle to have a better quality of life. Liliana is 29 years old and is originally from a community called San Andrés. She and her husband have a mechanic workshop. She helps him however she can and in whatever he can teach her. She says that she’s had the business for more than six years and that they started it due to lack of auto parts in her community. She and her husband decided to open a shop so that other mechanics could come and buy what they needed to fix cars. She says that she really likes her work and that she watches over her two children and the business. She is requesting a loan through Vision Fund so that she can continue to invest in her auto parts business and have different brand parts. She says that her goal is to grow her business and open a parts store in a larger community, closer to the road. The other members are llaman Consuelo, Leticia, Florentina, Tomasa, Blanca Estela, Maricela, Martha, Isabel, Reynalda, Sofia and Alejandra, and they will invest in cosmetics and perfumes via catalog, baking supplies, products for a grocery store, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and shoes and clothing via catalog.
