As a professional goal, Juana says she and her husband would love to one day open a store and workshop outside of their home. On a more personal note, Juana also plans to use the profits she has been saving in the bank to facilitate a university education for all four of her children and eventually construct a house of her own, as the one in which they currently live is rented. For all these reasons, Juana is very grateful to have been a part of her village bank for the past 13 years. It has been of immense help, she explains, teaching her how to save and assisting her in the realization of her many goals. Juana is requesting a loan of $800, with which she and her husband will buy leather to fashion and old coins to be melted and molded.
