Microloans empower entrepreneurs to grow all kinds of businesses. Lupita runs a water purification business in Mexico with her husband. Their son learned about filtration technology at his university and shared the knowledge with his parents. Microloans have helped Lupita to pursue this venture, which is more profitable than her previous tortilla-making business. Those of you with a Whole Planet Foundation calendar might recognize Lupita - she is the microcredit client of Pro Mujer featured for the month of May. Thank you San-J for being our May calendar sponsor! #mexico #wpfmexico #wholeplanet #microfinance
