"My name is Lucia Guadalupe. I'm 35 years old and live with my husband, Oscar, and my two children, ages 12 and 15. We're from Huitzilzingo.
"I have a student store in an elementary school. I manage the business and have one person who helps me. We sell food from Monday through Friday during the break. I have worked in elementary school for two years but have had this business for more than five years. My achievements are that I'm more stable financially and my legacy has grown.
"The challenges I face are finishing the improvements on my house, which is why I'm requesting this loan to buy construction supplies such as cement, cinder blocks, and sand."
