La Mixtequilla Group's story

This group is named L. MixtequilL. because it is the name of the place where the majority of the group lives. The five people in the group are named Rocío Hernández, Anel Martínez, Francisco Javier Ávalos C., Javier D. L. O, and Isabel Hernández. All of them live in Veracruz. Rocío works at a beauty salon in her home, Isabel and Anel drive cars, Francisco Javier works with commercially raised cattle, and Javier has a small grocery store.

Rocio is the representative of the group. She is married with three sons. She is a stylist and attends to her clients in her home because she has yet to establish a fixed location where she can better attend to her customers. She requests a loan to purchase things she needs to start her beauty salon.

She would also like to buy merchandise to have a better variety and offer the best service. Her goal for the future is to give a better life to her children. With her income she hopes that one day her kids will have a better future and go to college.

Rocío says that she is very excited to be in the L. MixtequilL. group because she knows that she can rely on her group members. She hopes that this is the first of many loans with Fundación Realidad.

Rocío feels very fortunate and appreciative of the Kiva loan officers who are willing to help her and her group's businesses move forward.

In this group: Anel, Isabel, Rocio, Francisco Javier, Javier
