The group, section 7, is located in a community where the dominant economic activity is the planting and cultivation of sugar cane. The people are very friendly, hardworking and cheerful. This group is composed of 5 people: Roman- Sells soft drinks Maria Elizabet- Sells footwear Virginia- Sells tacos Ana Bertha- Sells clothing Serafin- Sells soft drinks

Roman is 36 years old. He is single and finished high school. He says that for more than 15 years, he has had a small place in his home, a snack bar, which is open every day from 9 in the morning until his last customer.

When he began this business, it was because his town had few sources of employment and he wanted to help his mother and give her better and improve their quality of life.

He will invest the credit in the purchase of a variety of soft drinks, juices, cookies, sweets and fried foods to re-stock his snack bar.

For the future, he wants to do a small remodel of his business and continue to support his mother.
