Graciela
Graciela is a married lady, age 50. She has four grown children, three men and one woman, with whom she lives in the Department of Suchitepéquez.

Graciela explains that she has two occupations, which are selling groceries and raising pigs. These two occupations have helped her to contribute to her family’s finances. She has been engaged in these two occupations—taught to her by her father with great kindness and thoughtfulness—for 25 years now, and to date, they continue to be productive with respect to the generation of income and earnings.

She has noticed that these businesses are fairly profitable, so she is seeking a loan of 10,000 Quetzals for the purchase of construction materials to improve her house. She will repay the loan by means of her businesses.

She is a woman who has dreams, and one of these is to ensure a decent home for her family, so that in the future they will have good living conditions.

Graciela es una señora casada de 50 años de edad, actualmente vive junto a sus cuatro hijos de los cuales son: tres hombres y una mujer ambos mayores de edad, quienes viven en el Departamento de Suchitepequez.
Graciela comenta que se dedica a dos actividades las cuales son: la venta de abarrotes y la crianza de marranos. Estas dos actividades la han ayudado a contribuir a la economía de su familia. Por lo que ahora lleva veinticinco años de laborar en estos dos oficios que bondadosamente su padre le enseño, hasta la fecha aun siguen siendo productivos en cuanto a la generación de ingresos y ganancias.
Ahora ha observado que estos negocios son bastante rentables, por lo que está solicitando un préstamo de Q 10,000.00 para la compra de materiales de construcción ya que necesita mejorar la estructura de su vivienda. El préstamo lo pagara con los negocios que tiene actualmente.
Ella es una mujer soñadora y uno de sus sueños es asegurarle una vivienda digna a su familia, para que en un futuro puedan vivir en condiciones optimas.
