In this Group: Juana, Amparo, Aurora
Mrs. Juana A. García is 65 years old. She lives in Santa Catarina, Copainala municipality, Chiapas state, México. She is married to Mr. Esteban Reyes López. She had a total of 10 children who are all married now. She has a nine year old granddaughter, Lithiel Reyes Hernández, in her care who is in fourth grade.

She has sold cheese for the last 18 years. She also sells other products like: white pinol (a drink made from corn), bananas, banana leaves for tamales, among others. She tells us that she does quite well in this work since it has solved many difficulties regarding household expenses.

Her inspiration for this kind of work started when she was quite young for she helped her mother sell in the market. When she married she stopped doing but when she found herself in need she started up again and thanks to God it has had good results.

With profits from her sales she stocks up again to earn daily income and so that her customers can find what they are seeking for their homes.

Her dream is to have work while God gives her life and to save to support her granddaughter until she finishes a career and has a good start in life, having a good job that she can go forward with and be independent.

Juana formed the group with her fellow members because she was very interested in the way the program works and they were encouraged to belong to the group called Santa María, so called because that’s the name of the place it’s located in.

García who will use the loan to buy and sell cheeses as well as fruits in the market; Amparo Villarreal M. who will use the loan to buy and sell cheeses as well as fruits to sell in the same region and Aurora Sánchez C. who will use the loan to buy assorted meats and offal to sell in the same region.
