Raquel's story

Mexican women are increasingly providing for their families, thanks to their desire to get ahead and provide their children with a better quality of life. This is the case of Raquel, who has made gradual progress improving her business through these loans. She is married and has a small child who is in elementary school. Three years ago, she decided to carry out a dream that she had, which was to establish a grocery store to help her husband with the household expenses. Raquel requests this loan to buy a variety of items to sell in her store such as: soap, sugar, shampoo, eggs, milk, cereal, coffee, canned goods, etc. She says that she started with a small table selling sweets, and now she has been stocking her store with groceries. She has been gradually growing her business, thanks to her desire to get ahead. Raquel's dream is to have a very well-stocked store, so that the people in her neighborhood won't have to spend money on tickets to travel to the center of town to shop.
