Estela
In the state of Oaxaca there is a community called Arroyo de Pita which is known for being the only community for many kilometers with a high school. This community is where Ms. Estela N. lives. She is 33 years old, studied through the fourth grade of primary school, and is married to Mr. Santos, who works for the police. She has two children who attend the school in her community.

She tells Fundacion Realidad A.C (FRAC) that over two years ago, she decided to start her own business because her husband's salary was not enough to cover all of their family's necessities.

Ms. Estela tells FRAC that from Monday through Friday, she sells chicken, ground meat, and cheese empanadas outside the school in her community during the recess hour. She needs this loan to invest in the purchase of corn, meat, salt, oil, tomatoes, chilies, onion, cabbage, and cheese for making her empanadas.

She also tells FRAC that her sales are good and that she hopes this loan will help her business to prosper. She hopes to provide her children with a better quality of life so that they can have careers in the future.

Estela is very grateful to the foundation for the loan she has been offered because it will not only help her business to grow but it will also help her to grow as a person.
