Maria Guadalupe's story

Guadalupe is originally from Ocampo, a place full of nature including a monarch sanctuary which functions as a tourist attraction from November to February. She is 25 years old and married to Mr. Eliseo who has a mechanic shop where he repairs power saws. They have a 5 year old son named Franco. Mrs. Guadalupe is requesting a loan to buy bed spreads, sheets, curtains, towels, bath robes, table clothes, etc. She has been in this business for approximately 5 years and says she sells her linens to neighbors and people she knows. She says she also started this business to help her husband pay their house bills. Guadalupe is thankful for the loan being offered with which she will have linens available to sell. She says, "if I have products available then clients will be more likely to buy them since love for things develops from sight." Her goal is to have her own shop so she can take better care of her son.
