El Aguacatillo Group's story

This group consists of three industrious members. The group coordinator, Sra. María, is a 42-year-old single mother of two children (ages 22 and 17). They give her the strength and the motivation to succeed. She sells pillows and different fruit seeds at markets across the country. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy materials such as fabric, foam, thread, as well as different seeds, such as cashews. With the other loans she has received, María has been able to make improvements to her home. She is an example of success.

The other members are as follows:
• Sra. Ana is 26 years old is a merchant who sells “pinol” and “pinolillo” (both are traditional beverages made from corn and cacao) on the streets in her community and from her home.
• Sr. Danny is 44 years old and a merchant who sells pillows on order. He also works as a waiter at an eco-hotel in town, which provides additional income for supporting his family.
