San Agustin De Jonacatepec Group's story

This caring group is called Saint of Jonacatepec which is located in the Jonacatepec community in the state of Morelos, Mexico. This group is formed of 10 members who know one another. One of the members is Mrs. Isabel C. S. who is going to use her loan to buy oil, sugar, beans, rice, etc. to supply her grocery store. Mrs. Regina Ángeles S. is going to buy lingerie to start her business. Mrs. Julia L. N. is going to buy seasonal fruits to sell peanuts, etc. Mrs. Cristina R. L. is going to buy tortillas, dough, cheese, rice, beans, etc. for the production and sale of her Mexican meals. Mrs. Lidia A. Martínez is going to buy wholesale shoes to sell. Mrs. Cenobia Lavín R. is going to buy all types of chillies and seeds to sell. Mr. Eduardo L. Gutiérrez is going to buy chicken wholesale to sell. Mrs. Ivalu Ávila Pérez is going to buy vegetables, meat, plates, etc. for the production and sale of her products and Mexican meals. Mrs. Luz María García Millán is going to buy fried tortillas, chicken, milk, cheese, etc. for the production and sale of her products and Mexican meals. Mr. Eduardo L. Gutiérrez is a member of the group, is 47 years old, single, and is a licensed physical education teacher. He requested the loan for the poulterer's shop he has in the town market. He wants to buy materials and wholesale poultry. Mr. Eduardo offers his clients chicken in pieces, sausage, and seasoned in spices. He started his business 24 years ago since he had a chicken farm. The municipal president granted him the place he has in his poulterer’s shop. This business is very important since his mother depends on it, he is able to make payments, and he can support his family. His favorite part of his job is meeting people in his clientele such as women, young women, men, and variations. His business is popular for treating his customers well. The obstacles he faces are high costs and the competition he has since other poulterer shops are located nearby. The profits he will receive from his sales will be used to buy more products, a rotisserie, and he plans on achieving that with hard work and treating clients well. Mr. Eduardo’s business has helped him succeed with all of the costs and problem that life brings. In the future he wishes to add more rooms to his home as well as make some general repairs. His dream is to make the most profits possible, have a nice house, and take his mother out more. He is very happy with the loan he is offered because he will but more puoltry for his business. Jonacatepec is a calm village, beautiful, and filled with simple and friendly people. The surroundings are beautiful because it is calm and enclosed by hills. And it is in a temperate zone. The members of the group want to tell Kiva and Reality Foundation “We are very thankful for the opportunity you give us along with the Foundation and our own work and the hope for a better future.”
