Juana's story

Mrs. Juana Sánchez S. lives in the Morelia neighborhood in the city of Coapilla, which is in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. She lives in a common-law marriage with Mr. Pedro Pérez Sánchez, and they have four children in their care. Julieta, age 11, is in the 5th grade. The others are Neftalí, age 9, María, age 4, and Aron, age 2. She asks for this loan for her soda deposit, but mainly to supply her business with groceries, since many things are missing. She wants her store to look better and her clientele to purchase what they want to buy. She mentions that when she was very young, she began to sell with her mom. And when she got married, she set out to put a business in the entrance to her home. In this way she can support her husband and continue improving life for her children that are growing. With the income that she is going to obtain, she will purchase merchandise for her store. Also, she will pay her promised amount to Fundación Realidad. She will pay her payments on time so they continue to grant her the loan, since it supports her to buy what she lacks in her business. Her dream is to make her business larger so that she can work with it. This will help her to support her children in their studies, and so that they will be people with a profession so they can depend on themselves.
