April Fools! Yuk yuk yuk!
Formed in 2009, this group, Mujeres Triunfanda Para El Futuro (Women Triumphing Toward the Future) has 11 members and has saved $342. The group holds cooking classes once per month in addition to its monthly savings meeting. Members each contribute a $1.00 per month plus 25 cents toward a club raffle. They also contribute ingredients to their cooking classes. Here they are making papusas with the leaves of chaya and chiplin. The women claim that the savings club gives them the resources to purchase healthful ingredients and the cooking classes bring the club members closer together.
