Rafael
Rafael is 45 years old. He only finished secondary school. He’s married and has three children: Zulma, 21, and Zeidy, 19, who go to the university and Rafael who is in elementary school. He and his family live in the state of Oaxaca in a community called Tetela which is noted for being located in a sugar cane growing zone just fifteen minutes form one of the large sugar cane plantations called “La Margarita.”

Rafael tells us that he works in the fields but what he earns there wasn’t enough to cover household expenses so, talking it over with his wife, they decided to open a little grocery store to earn a little extra money and provide better quality of life for their children. The store is located in a small locale he has at home that faces the street and that opens daily from 8am until 8pm. His children and his wife tend to it. He needs the loan to buy rice, beans, oil, toilet paper, soup, sugar, salt, candy, cookies and soft drinks to restock the store. He tells us that he always likes to keep the store well stocked so that his customers always find what they are looking for and will return to shop at his store.

Rafael hopes that his business will prosper with the loan because he wants to finish paying for his children’s schooling and provide them with a better quality of life.
