Oralia is 35 years old and studied up to high school level. She is married and has one son called Roberto who is 6 years old and currently in pre-school. Oralia sells napkins for tortillas and for covering food. She requested her loan to buy napkins and stock her business. Oralia started her business three years ago. It was her mom who taught her how to sell napkins.

Many salespeople from different communities come to the Tepalcingo street market to sell their products. It was there that Oralia saw napkins being sold by the dozen. She used some savings that she had to buy several dozen napkins with which to start her business. She started to sell her products in the Tepalcingo street market which is located in the town center, 15 minutes from her home.

This business is very important because it helps Oralia's family financially. She feels proud to be able to work in her own business, take care of her young son and serve her customers in a kind and friendly manner. She is happy to be receiving this loan from Kiva because she will use it to stock her business so that she can grow and have a range of different types of napkin to offer her customers, who are housewives. Oralia uses some of her profits to re-stock her business and also uses some to cover her household expenses. Her dreams and hopes are to get ahead in life, and for her son to study and get a good job.

The members of this group would like to say to Kiva and Fundación Realidad "Many thanks for supporting people who need it. You are helping our businesses and our families".
