Juana
Juana, age 37, says that she only has an elementary school education. She did not continue her education because her parents did not have time to take her to school. They had to go outside their village to sell their fruit. Juana also liked selling more than going to school. She has devoted herself completely to selling fruit ever since she was very young.

She is from a place called Melchor Ocampo. The monarch butterfly sanctuaries found there are the appeal of the place.

Juana sells fruit and vegetables in the village market.

She is requesting a loan to buy fresh vegetables like chilies, tomatoes, chayotes (in the squash family), and carrots, etc. She has had this business for 21 years. Her parents helped her start this business when she was very young so that she would be responsible with her expenses.

Juana is very grateful for this loan. Right now she does not have much merchandise, and she will be able to better stock her vegetable stand with the loan. She says that she stocks up every eight days in the village supply center in Zitacuaro.

Juana is married to Jesús, who is employed. They have four children.

The goal that Juana has is to introduce a little bit of dried chilies and seeds to her business. She will do that in order to sell other types of products.
