Rocio is from Mexico. She has 1 child. She needs a loan of $475 to buy bananas, oranges, apples, tangerines, peaches, tomatoes, chili peppers, potatoes, and radishes.
Rocio is a single mother who sells fruits and vegetables to offer her son a better life. She will use a loan from World Vision to buy bananas, oranges, apples, tangerines, peaches, tomatoes, chili peppers, potatoes, and radishes. By selling a wider variety of produce, she will increase her profits
Rocio lives in Acatepec, a town whose name means "Hill of Giant Reeds." The region is characterized by its many beautiful pine trees. Rocio's son Martin is two years old. Martin is the greatest inspiration for Rocio, who hopes to save enough money that she will be able to pay for his school expenses when he is older.
Rocio would like to have her own establishment to sell her produce. That way, she would be able to store and sell a larger number of fruits and vegetables, and the business would be able to continue expanding.
Retail is a quick and scalable way to begin earning a profit. Many entrepreneurs begin with stalls at markets or even at home and need a loan to expand or increase their inventory. Others may be ready to open a small store. Goods purchased from loan funds range from clothing, grocery or sundry items to jewelry, candy, perfume or health and beauty supplies. Loans in the commerce sector account for around 33% of our loans.
The small community of Rio Santa Catarina, which derives its name from a local river, has a mountainous terrain and warm climate. Economic opportunities in this community are diverse as a result of its close proximity to the growing city of Ometepec.
In Rio Santa Catarina, World Vision is assisting farmers with production and marketing; educating families on disaster preparedness; and working to improve education through tutoring and teacher training. We are also providing healthcare services, nutritional training, and housing assistance.
