Tzamjuyub Concordia Group's story

Florentina Catarina is 36 years old and married. She has a third grade education and three children who are all in school. She works with livestock, buying chickens to fatten up and then sell. She started this business with little capital and so far has 10 years experience. She has the support of her husband, who is a merchant.

She is organizing a group and asking for a loan that she needs to buy chickens to fatten up and concentrate to feed them. In the future, she wants her business to prosper and have more chickens. The other members of the group work in artisanal crafts and as merchants. One of the members of the group was unable to attend when the photo was taken.
