Carolina is 27 years old. She is married and has 3 children: Galilea, 10, and Hector, 8, who are in school, and Evelin, who is 4 years old. Carolina has a plot of nopal. She requests this loan to buy insecticide for her crops. She started this business 10 years ago because her husband taught her how to grow nopal. Her business is important because with the sales of her nopal products she helps to cover the household expenses. She likes selling nopal because she has the income to repay the loan and some unexpected expenses, and she uses the profits in part for her family, and also to buy fertilizer and to rent a rotavator to turn over the land and extract the remains of the plants once the nopals have been harvested. Her business is popular because the plant is used as a food and also for medicinal purposes.

In Tlalnepantla there are many nopal producers; they transport their products to sell in different cities, or they sell to the distributors in Mexico City. Carolina hopes to build her own home and provide her children with food and a better house and education. She is pleased with this loan that you are providing her; it will help her a lot with her nopal production.

The members of this group want to say to Kiva and to Fundacion Realidad, "thanks for helping us with these loans, and we hope that you will continue to support us with loans so that we can grow our businesses and so that our families can live better. Thanks so much."

Tlalnepantla is a pretty town with a temperate climate where nopal, avocados, peaches and sapodillas are grown.
