April Fools! Yuk yuk yuk!
Juana de Dios, is a single mother of four. Although she has only a third grade education, she speaks with confidence about her experience as a promoter, and is sought after to form groups both within and outside of her community. She currently works with a women’s group and a children’s group in El Tablon, two groups in nearby Flor del Muerte and has identified a new group in La Crucita. She receives a small incentive in the form of agricultural inputs or other production materials, but she admits to lost income as her work with savings groups leaves her less time to weave. She explains, “The women are interested in saving and the groups are incredibly helpful. They are growing. I don’t want to leave them alone just yet.”
