Raquel
Raquel is a dedicated carpenter. She began when she was very young – her father was also a carpenter -- and her carpentry shop is called “Antonio,” the name of her young son, who is 3 years old. Raquel is requesting a loan to buy more materials to avoid falling behind in fulfilling customer orders for lack of materials.

Raquel goes every Saturday and Sunday to her sister's house so she can care for her son, since these days, Raquel needs to work every day to fulfill the customer orders she has, and avoid losing clients who like her work.

In addition to carpentry, Raquel sows corn on the land surrounding her parents' houses. She received a loan from another bank to invest in her corn field and she sells the harvest in neighborhood localities.

Raquel is a 34-year-old single mother. She only studied to the 2nd year of secondary school. Raquel wants her son to have more opportunities to fulfill his dreams when he grows up.

Raquel's biggest dream is to increase her business in order to have a better quality of life. She thanks Fundacion Realidad for its help in realizing her dreams.
