Tomasa Feliciana's story
Tomasa is a married 54-year-old woman. She lives with her husband in the community of Sololá and has five children between 22 and 30 years of age. Tomasa is a hardworking and persistent woman; despite her advanced age, she has a lot of strength and willingness to work, to generate income and to help her husband to support their family. For six years, Tomasa has been running a store from her own home where she sells soft drinks, snacks, and other items. She established her business with a positive mindset and, thankfully, the business is fairly profitable for her and her family. Because of this, she and her husband begun to build their own home. However, because of the recent increases in the price of building materials they no longer have enough funds to finish the construction, a project of great importance to Tomasa. Hence, she is requesting a loan to purchase blocks, lime, sand, and gravel. Tomasa hopes to receive this loan so that she may finish her home this year and continue performing home improvements.
