Francisca
Francisca is 70 years old but has “the heart of an 18-year-old.” She only completed elementary school because when she was a little girl parents preferred to teach girls housework and send the boys to school. She’s single and has two children who are married.

She tells us that a little over 8 months ago she opened a small grocery store in the front part of her house that faces the highway to earn a little extra money to continue moving forward. Francisca is a very cheerful, enthusiastic person and she tells us that she very much wants to work and get ahead. Besides her grocery store, she also sells food to travelers who request it and this is an extra source of income that helps her get by.

She needs this loan to buy cookies, candy, soft-drinks, juice, rice, beans, oil, toilet paper, salt, flour, matches and soap to restock the store and also a few ingredients like chilies, tomatoes, onions and meat for her meal preparations.

She tells us that she hopes God will continue to give her life to continue to work and get ahead. She also sends greetings to people who have made her loan possible which gives her the opportunity to continue to work and to earn a living.
