Blanca Lidia's story

Blanca works selling fruits and vegetables. She works every day without a set schedule, and her business has been functioning for 14 years, born of the need to offer her family a more comfortable life. Blanca lives with her husband and two children; as a close family, everyone works and supports the household expenses.

She will invest in the purchase of green beans, apples, pineapple, melon, chayote, pipianes, papayas, carrots, radishes, grapes, tomatoes, cabbage, etc. with which she will be able to stock the fresh merchandise of her business. She hopes to attract new customers, improve the family situation, and make the payments on her debt.

Her aspiration is to have the economic resources so that she can purchase some land and build her own house.
