This group is called San Agustín Chacalapa, they decided to give it this name because it is the name of the patron saint of their community and Chacalapa is the name of the place in which they live.

This story is about Juana who is a member of this group. She is 37 years old and is married to Raymundo who is a farmer. They have five children of which only Rodolfo, Juliana and Joaquín are studying as the youngest in the family is only 3 years old and the oldest is married. The three studying are in 1st year of university, 3rd year of high school, and the youngest is in the 1st year of secondary school.

Juana has a grocery store which she has been running for more than five years. She says that she decided to set up this store because, aside from the fact that it is a very good source of income as it returns good profits, her town is very small and there are no businesses of this type. With the loan that she has received, she is planning on investing in the purchase of more goods to stock her business well, such as soft drinks, soups, soap, oil, beans, rice, sugar and salt as these are what sell the most.

She says that her business is benefiting many people in her community, given that before she opened her grocery store, people had to go to the neighboring town for the products they needed, but now they don't need to go as far, saving them time and money.

Juana's aim is to make her store grow as she wants to extend it a bit more in order to have a wider variety of products to be able to continue supporting her children with their studies so that they can have get a god job and a have very bright future.

She thanks those who lent the money and to Kiva for the confidence they are placing in her and her group, as with their support, they are able to spur on their businesses and, above all, their families who are the ones who are most in need of this help.
