Las Ranitas Group's story

Doña Teresa is a member of a group called Las Ranitas. She is 63 years old, married to Macario, a day laborer, and only has a middle school education.

Doña Teresa has grown noni fruits for a little more than a decade, caring for a small orchard at her home and harvesting the fruit. She says that most of the time she sells the fruits to a factory that produces juice from them. Doña Teresa also notes that she sometimes trades noni fruits in exchange for bottles of juice from the factory, which she sells to generate income.

Doña Teresa says that the best thing about her work is that she sells a natural product that helps cure many illnesses. She has also begun to study the curative properties of noni fruit.

Doña Tere also sells clothing for men and women to earn extra income. A loan from VisionFund will help her pay for truck maintenance and purchase clothing (shirts, blouses, pants, shorts, skirts, and underwear).

Doña Teresa wants her business to keep growing and provide her a better quality of life.

The other members of the group are: Alejandrina, who sells food and honey Veronica, who sells groceries Agustina, who sells natural products.

In this group: Teresa, Alejandrina , Veronica, Agustina
