Jahuas Pancarita Group's story

The association named “Jahuas Pankarita” (Water Flowers) works in the focal center of the village of Exaltación, which forms part of the Pro-Mujer family. To date, they have 12 members who have demonstrated how organized and responsible they are with respect to their loan payments and internal activities.

A majority of this group’s members are married and have children, almost all of whom are of school age. All of them count with the economic support of their partners; however, their living expenses are greater than their combined income which is why they must make a great effort to obtain financial stability for their children.

Vending is one of the activities of the Jahuas Pankarita, such as selling vegetables, fruits and cereals. On the other hand, some members dedicate themselves to carpentry and make doors, windows, and tables, among other items.

In general, they work solely on order. They need additional capital to buy raw materials with the goal of producing an inventory of furniture to put on display and in this way obtain greater sales.
