Roberta
Roberta resides in the community of Atlacahualoya, Axochiapan, in the state of Morelos. She is 44 years old, married, and has 3 children: Arseno aged 20 and already working, Nayelo 17, and Luis Enrique 10 who is enrolled in primary school.

Roberta has a grocery store and also works in pottery, making large cooking pots, pans, and jars. She solicits this loan to purchase eggs, sugar, cooking oil, rice, soap, soft drinks, water, gelatins, toilet paper, etc., to restock her grocery store and pay the electric bill.

Roberta began her business some 10 years ago with what she and her husband had saved, after they went to work in the United States. Her business is important because it provides work for their daughter who is attending to the store, while Roberta and her husband make pottery, to help with household expenses and to afford to send their son to school.

Their dreams and hopes are that her store will grow, that her children will be healthy, and that nothing bad happens, so that they can live contentedly. Roberta wishes to say to Kiva and Fundacion Realidad, “Thanks for the loans, we are very grateful that you help us to improve our businesses and our families.” This loan will help to inject force into their business, and put inventory in the store to offer the customers.

Atlacahualoya is a pretty town where people come to work in the onion fields. They celebrate the day of St. Michael on September 29th, when there are masses, first communions, confirmations, a horse show, and a dance.
