Manzana Flat Group's story

Anastacia is a joyful and enterprising woman who works in the town of Tierra Blanca. Other people know this place as "Novia del Sol" because in the summer it gets very hot. The main sources of employment are business and ranching. Anastacia is a member of La Manzana group, which is made up of five members, and each one of them has a business.

For nine years, Anastacia has had a small establishment where she sells construction materials and replacement parts. She tells us that she decided to start this business to create a source of employment for her family and because it is very profitable, since people are always building their homes and making repairs. She is very happy with her business, since over time it has prospered and provides employment for her and her husband. Also, she always deals with people and has the chance to make friends. A loan from Vision Fund will help her to buy PVC piping and steel to sell. She hopes to have a better-stocked store in the future to provide better service for her customers.

The other group members are: Elavures, who sells groceries; Santos, who sells food at good prices; Perfecta, who sells fruits and legumes; and Cruz, who sells stationery.

In this group: Anastacia, Elaures, Santos, Perfecta, Cruz
