Benito Juarez Group's story

Benito Juarez is the name of a group that is formed by five members. Each of them is dedicated to a different economic activity. Jazmín has a general store, Agustina sells underwear, Maria Dora sells cosmetics, Ceferina sells clothes and Cándido sells meat. The group is located in a sugarcane region where the main source of employment is agriculture. Jazmín is a young woman, age 24 who only studied through middle school. She is married to Antonio, who works as a teacher and they are the parents of two young children. Jazmín says that 9 years ago, she and her husband opened a general store with the intention to earn some extra money. After being in business for a while they built a storefront in their home to locate their business there. With the funds of the Fundación Realidad loan, Jazmín will be able to purchase beans, rice, canned tuna, cooking oil, cookie assortment, soap, chlorine, drinks, canned goods, toilette paper, toothpaste and candy to stock her business. Jazmin faces challenges in her business at the end of the seasonal labor of the harvest time, because her sales diminish. She wishes this loan can help her business to keep on growing, because she wants to offer her children the opportunity to study a career.
