Matza (Flat) Group's story

The group is called “Matza” and it’s composed of three women each with her own activity. They live in a town called Ocotepec where the feast day of Saint Dominick is celebrated in April. María Neria was interviewed. She is 29 years old. She finished high-school and is her parents’ fifth daughter. She’s married to Misael with whom she has three children who are still in her care.

She requested a loan from Fundación Realidad to use in her business buying and selling caramel candy; she’s been in business two and a half years and she comments that she does well because she’s able to cover some of her household expenses with income earned from it and with support from her husband, Misael, it’s even better.

She started this activity in order to do something with her free time while still watching over her family because she’s liked to work and help out at home since she was little. She’s been very happy since getting married because her husband helps her continue to work.

Segunda will use the loan to buy ingredients to make tortillas and Noemí will use it to buy clothes like pants, t-shirts and shirts, among others to sell.

In this group: Segunda, Noemi, M Neria
