Ismael
Ismael is a new client of the institution. He is a person who can talk very comfortably when we comment on his history of success. He was excited knowing we would take the picture. This is why he gave us the interview. In it he tells us that he is 37 years old and lives in a Mazahua community called San Agustín Mextepec. He has been married to Guadalupe for 16 years, and together they have 3 children who attend school.

Ismael has a shoe store. From the time he was a child, he knew how to sell shoes, since his parents were the founders of the business and of the market where they sell the shoes. Now he has his own business. Although it comes from his parents, Ismael is the one who tends to it and is in charge of it. Ismael is asking for the loan in order to purchase more shoes such as boots, tennis shoes, high heels, sandals, etc., for women, men, girls, and boys. He tells us that the loan will help him a lot since he will be able to invest more in his business and he will not have to worry about buying merchandise for a long time.

Nevertheless, the difficulty he is facing is that many times he doesn't sell and due to lack of money, and also because he just went through the illness of his wife, he can't invest more in his business. Regarding this, he also says that he likes the countryside a lot and had sheep and a field of cactus, though he sold the sheep to cover the costs resulting from the illness of his wife.

But Don Ismael is a very hard-working and responsible person, and he has goals, such as to push hard with his shoe business, since he remembers that once his shoe sales were very good, and he would like to sell like before in order to improve the quality of life for his children and wife. He thinks that due to lack of money he will not be able to raise himself up, but he will do everything possible to raise himself up again. He is a very hard-working family man, for which reason he is very grateful to FRAC and Kiva for the support they give him, and he hopes not to end up looking badly.
