Alma America
Alma América lives in the community of Atlacahualoya. She is 35 years old, married, and has two children: 7 year-old Daniela, who is in elementary school, and 4 year-old Rafael, who is in pre-school.

Alma has a soft drinks store called 'Deposito Rubí'. She requested this loan to buy soft drinks, water, cookies and Marinela-brand products with which to stock her business. She started her business one year ago when her father-in-law sold it to her. Her husband gave her the money to stock it. This business is important because it helps to support her family. Alma is proud to be working and looking after her children. She likes it when she makes good sales. During hot periods she sells more products. She uses her profits to re-invest in her business, buying more merchandise.

Alma's dreams and wishes are to get her children ahead in life and for them not to want for anything. She would also like to grow her business and increase the number of products that she sells, including grocery store products. She is happy with the loan that she will receive because it will enable her to stock her business. She would like to say to Kiva and Fundación Realidad, "Thank you for the support that you give us".

Atlacahualoya is a peaceful village where people grow onions, corn and green beans.
