San Blas Group's story

The San Blas Group was formed thanks to Mrs. Ester Caballero, who told Mrs. Liz Elvira R. Noguera about the Foundation and the program. We can talk about Mrs. Antonia Ovelar Del Rocio. She is 28 years old, has 3 children, and lives in a poorly constructed house made of boards with a sheet metal roof. Her mother, Mrs. Del Rocio, also lives with her. She works selling fruit and vegetables in the settlements and neighborhoods. She buys her merchandise from the basic provisions market at 4:00 am and returns home at 6:00 am to complete her sales circuit with her oldest son while the other children stay under their grandma's care. Mrs. Del Rocio says that she has to put forth a lot of determination and courage to get ahead, and with the help that the Foundation gives her she hopes to get ahead with her children.
