Paxoj Huitan Group's story

Maura Aracely is 28-year-old single mother. She did not have the opportunity to study. She has four children, two of which are studying. She makes a living taking care of and raising pigs, to later sell them when they are big. She started this business with the support of her family and now has eight years of experience. She has the support of her husband who makes a living from agriculture.

She organized a group to request a loan that she will use to buy pigs, in that way making a better profit when she sells them. She hopes to have piglets in the future.

The other members of the group make a living from weaving, raising animals and working in a pharmacy.

In this group: Maura Aracely, Josefina Lucas, Maria Ofelia, Marcelina, Elisa Modesta, Maria Natividad, Yolanda Lucas, Antonia, Olivia, Maria Antonieta, Rosalina Esmeralda, Maria Candelaria
