She has one small daughter who is two years old. She has a lot of cactus. She requested her loan to buy fertilizer and insecticide to maintain her cactus. She began her business five years ago. Her parents taught her to work in her area which his a source of work for the community. Her business is important because, from it, she feeds the family.She likes it when she sees that she has a lot of cactus production. Customers arrive by trailer for the cactus to export it. She uses a part of the earnings to reinvest and the other part for food and another part for the bills at home. Her dreams and hopes are to buy a car to use for her work and that her daughter is well and grows healthy. She is emotional about the loan that she is going to receive. She is going to invest it in the cactus crop. The members of the group want to say to thank you to Kiva and to Fundacion Realidad for their loans.
