Angela Adriana's story

Ángela Adriana Núñez R. is 60 years old and married. She has 5 children, whose ages are as follows: her oldest son is 42 years old, her next son is 39 years old, her daughter is 35 years old, and her youngest son is 33 years old. All of her children support themselves. Her partner sells footwear. Ángela hopes to grow her clientele as well as her inventory, and by doing so to remain competitive in the market. Her dream is to earn enough money to no longer require loans for business capital, so that she will be able to be economically independent, while also saving enough money to provide for her and her husband's future. She and her husband still both work very hard in spite of their age. Her dream is for her family to remain united, so that she may stay close to her children and grandchildren as time passes on. She would like to live longer so that she may spend even more time with her family, and wants to continue helping her daughter to raise her grandchildren, so that she can help ensure that they are brought up well.

Ángela's business sells both baked goods and footwear. She sells the two items in different places; footwear is sold in the central market, and baked goods are sold out of her home. She has been running her business for 3 years. She initially sold soft drinks, but this didn't earn enough money to sustain her entire family, since her husband was not working at the time. Needing to find another source of income, she decided that her husband should sell footwear while she would make and sell baked goods. In this way, they would both be able to work toward improving their family's finances and moving them forward in the world. The purpose of the loan is to provide capital with which Ángela would purchase corn, school shoes, the children's game payana, firewood, and cheese, so that she may provide more of the delicious baked goods and other items that her customers demand.
