Raquel Armanda
Raquel P., 46, is separated and lives with her two, still-single, student sons in her own home.

She has ample experience as a vegetable merchant. Her stand has been located in Santiago Sacatepequez’s municipal market for 15 years. Raquel tends to it herself and, thanks to her warm customer service and wide selection of fresh vegetables, she insures that her customers return regularly.

Thanks to the previous loan she was able to set up an additional business consisting of natural products sales. She is asking for a new loan to stock other products her customers are asking for.

She works hard to get ahead and has several goals one of which is to help her sons with their schooling.
