Juana Ruth's story

Juana, an entrepreneur, plans to improve her living conditions by making changes to the infrastructure of her business and her home. She and her husband make and sell metallurgic products. This business has been the family’s main source of income for some time and their long-term projects include expanding and setting up other sales outlets. They invested the previous loan in the business and produced larger quantities of products. In this loan cycle, they will purchase raw material such as bed frames, springs, paint, solder, and other materials required for making beds, as well as coal stoves, and industrial stoves with one or two burners in order to supply the business and fill orders.
