La Virgen De Guadalupe Group's story

In a community in Oaxaca in the most remote part of the community a group called “La Virgen De Guadalupe” has formed. The members decided to give it that name due to their great devotion. The members have different economic activities to help their families.

Eugenia- selling sheep, Laura- cargo service, Petra-selling kitchen batteries, Cristina- selling blankets and sheets, Alejandra-selling clothes, Diana Laura- selling clothes, Merced-selling cosmetics, María De Lourdes-selling corn and handmade tortillas.

Since she was 12, Eugenia has raised and sold sheep. Living in a place where she can raise sheep without having them penned in is favorable because when she takes them to graze, the animals really enjoy the place, the air, and freedom. "And I like looking at nature and enjoying going out day to day to graze the sheep." This time, wants to invest in buying sheep to be able to have more lambs and more earnings. The profits from her sales are invested in the household expenses, school fees and personal expenses.

"Thanks to VisionFund México for making our dreams possible" Eugenia says, very enthusiastically.

In this group: Eugenia , Laura , Petra , Cristina , Alejandra , Diana Laura , Merced , Maria De Lourdes
