Balam Nah De Carrillo Group's story

María Magdalena B. K., “Miss Magda” is 40 years old. She is a member of the Balam Nah de Carrillo group. The name means House of the Jaguar in Mayan. The group is located in the Carrillo Puerto community.

María Magdaleana has a room, which serves as a home as much as a store. This is where she lives with her husband, Mauricio, and their three children. Nacho is 21 (he has special needs), Yuridia is 12, and little Lisandra is seven and school age.

She needs to build another room to use as a store for her natural products sales. She started this business three years ago selling by catalog. María currently has the products in her house. Having a store would mA. her business more attractive to her customers.

Magdalena currently feels committed to her work as a mother and to her business. Her priority is to earn money in order to continue taking her son, Nacho, for his rehabilitation treatments. That is why she is asking us for a loan, to be able to carry out her plans to expand her store and to present a better quality of life to her family.

In this group: Emeteria, Maria Magdalena, Irma, Reina Carmina, Alicia, Maria Cristina, Maria Teresa, Yunia, Bartola, Candelaria Del Rosario, Reyne De La Cruz*
