Porfiria R. González is a member of La Capilla group who is 69 years old and only studied up to the 2nd year of primary school. She has seven children: Maria, 49 years old, Santiago, 47, Ángel, 45, Juan, 43, Agripino, 38, Rosa, 36, and Julia, 33. All of her children are married except for Santiago who is single and lives with Porfiria. She is asking for a loan to pay for her orders to Fuller (a catalog). She also wants to improve the floor of her apartment and sell Estrella perfumes and cosmetics from the Fuller catalog. Her clients are women, girls, and men and she sells perfume, lipstick, lotion, and makeup. She has been selling from the catalog for 10 years when Adrian first invited her to sell them. It was difficult at first but little by little she learned, bought a calculator to help her make change, and now she is in the habit of selling and cannot stop. She gives her clients 15 days of credit. She leaves in the morning to sell her products, distribute her orders, charge her clients, and put in new orders. Porfiria considers her work important because it helps with her finances and she enjoys selling the products since she gets to wander while she works. She receives great satisfaction and joy when she gets paid and has money. She uses the income from her business to buy food, pay for water and lights. She is very happy to be receiving this loan. She wants her children to be happy and continue living independently.

The members of the La Capilla group would like to say to Kiva and the Fundación Realidad "thank you for supporting us with this loan and lending us a hand to grow, thank you."

Porfiria likes Anenecuilco because she lives well there. She was able to buy a piece of land and live there. In the city of Anenecuilco is the museum of the house of Emiliano Zapata where parts of a historical movie were shot and they used photos from the celebration on the 8th of August which celebrates the museum of Emiliano Zapata with regional dancing, brass bands, and singers.
