After The Problem He Ran Into With His Son’s Baptism, This Latino Dad Decided To Create His Own Charro Apparel Store

With a love for authentic Mexican apparel, but limited access to it because he doesn’t live in Mexico, entrepreneur Francisco Galvez decided to take matters into his own hands by opening his own charro clothing store.

Founded by Francisco Galvez in January 2015, Charro Azteca is stealing the hearts of many Latinos for its beautiful and authentic charro apparel.

So. ADORABLE!! ?

When his son was born in December 2014, Galvez knew that other families would also love and appreciate an authentic Mexican clothing line. So he went for it.


“My dream had always been to dress my son in a White Charrito traje for his baptism. Now the question was where to get this suit? Even if you do [have access to these retailers], you still have to visit 3-4 locations because of limited quantities and the possibility of them not having your size. I had a problem and figured other people were going through the same thing, so I wanted to fix that.”

A few weeks after launching his business he received a transaction from Alaska of all places that helped Galvez realize what he was doing had a purpose.


“Our people have migrated to every corner of the U.S., sometimes to places you would’ve never thought of and they don’t have access to products like the ones I sell. I feel obligated to provide authentic Mexican products no matter where they live in the U.S. It was an Alaska transaction that I received in the first weeks of business that cemented everything I was doing had a purpose.”

People from all over the U.S. and of all ages are ordering baptism, wedding and even prom outfits from Charro Azteca.


#PromGoals

It’s been a few years since Galvez founded Charro Azteca “and the support has been overwhelming,” Galvez noted on Instagram and he couldn’t be happier.


With every delivery made, Galvez told mitú, “The ultimate purpose of Charro Azteca is to deliver the Mexican culture to every door step in the country. We want to become the Amazon of all authentic, Mexican culture products. Our tagline is ‘It’s in our blood’ or ‘Lo tenemos en la sangre.'”

A Mexican Beauty Queen Has Landed In Jail On Kidnapping Charges, Why Does This Keep Happening?

A Mexican Beauty Queen Has Landed In Jail On Kidnapping Charges, Why Does This Keep Happening?

The pageant world is popular in communities all over the planet. From Russia to the U.S. and across Latin America, beauty queens (and kings) strut their stuff on runways and display their many talents. But the pageant world is also known to suffer from a more sinister side that often lands itself in the headlines.

In Mexico, beauty pageants have long been connected to organized crime and international human trafficking rings. Now, one former beauty queen has landed herself in jail in connection to these terrible crimes.

A former Mexican beauty queen has been jailed in connection to a kidnapping ring.

A former Oaxaca beauty queen has been jailed without bail on suspicion of being part of a kidnapping ring operating in the Mexican states of Veracruz and Oaxaca.

Laura Mojica Romero, 25, was Miss Oaxaca in 2018 and the 2020 International Queen of Coffee in Colombia, a beauty pageant at which she represented Mexico. She was arrested Thursday with seven other people in a raid conducted by a federal anti-kidnapping unit after two months of investigation.

A judge on Saturday ruled that Mojica and the seven others will remain in prison for the next two months while authorities continue to gather evidence. Members of the group each face up to 50 years in prison.

Romero had tried to position herself as unique among beauty queens in the country.

Laura Mojica Romero defined herself as “more than a pretty face” during a interview she did in 2019. The 25-year-old, who at that time had just won the Miss Oaxaca contest for the second time, said that the contest had taken an important turn because it highlighted aspects that went “beyond” the contestants’ own beauty.

She put herself out there as an example when remembering that she participated in the delivery of supplies (sweaters, blankets and coats) in remote Indigenous communities and announced that among her future projects included support for the musical education of children from impoverished communities, as well as the formation of women’s entrepreneurship cells; a strategy that she claimed was to combat gender violence.

“We cannot stand idly by, we have to eradicate violence against women, through campaigns and talks that make men aware of this problem,” said the also graduate in Business Administration from the Universidad Veracruzana (UV) to Newsweek Mexico.

Mexico is an international hub for human trafficking.

In its most recent report, the organization Alto al Secuestro warned that the states with the highest incidence of kidnappings are the State of Mexico, with seven; Veracruz, with 12; Oaxaca, with six; Guerrero, with five; and Tabasco, Sinaloa and Mexico City, with four respectively.
