“Our mentor Alberto has inspired and motivated us to continue working. We have been taught that with effort, goals are achieved, and dreams are fulfilled. We looked for inspiration and definitely, we have found it.”
-Juana from Guatemala.
Juana and her family grow and sell cardamon in the small community of Senahu, Guatemala. She knows how difficult it is to be a farmer. It is what her family has always done, yet today her enterprise is very different from her parents. Juana has received mentoring and business training from Mentors International. She keeps a notebook to track her household expenses and a separate one to monitor her business expenses.
She does more research before selling her cardamon to ensure she makes the most profit. She is also expanding her enterprise and growing yucca.
Juana is grateful to Alberto and Mentors International for supporting her through training and a micro-loan. She says, “Her dreams are coming true, and my family is much healthier now. Thank you, Mentors International.”
