Raquel
Mrs. Raquel is originally from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, but her parents migrated to the neighboring state of San Luis Potosi in search of a better quality of life. She got married at 15 years of age to Mr. Lucas who works as a carpenter. They have 3 children, Berenice who is 18, Natali is 17, and Gerardo is 12 years old, and they all attend school or high school. Mrs. Raquel due to the recent needs of her children, especially for their education, decided to start a business selling fruits, vegetables and groceries. She started selling items at her doorstep and later opened a small store in her home. At present, Mrs. Raquel is very happy since she has grown little by little and with the loan she will be able to stock her store with fruits and groceries to have more sales and to meet her goal of increasing her earnings to help her children get ahead in life.
