Mi Pequeña Hacienda Group's story

Carmen Emilia, 47, is married and has five children who are independent adults. She’s part of the “Mi Pequeña Hacienda” (My Little Hacienda) group; it has 7 members. Carmen Emilia has sold food for the last 17 years in a space set aside for this at home. Thanks to her work she’s been able to pay for her children’s schooling and help her husband pay for utilities at home. The loan she got was invested in ingredients to prepare her dishes; she buys them in large amounts in order to get a lower price.

In this group: Carmen Emilia, Flores Albina, Erasma, Alberto, Armida Jessica*, Mirtha Yanet, Haydee Hermelinda
