Little by little

Family stores up treasures

It was a chance encounter but no accident when the team from Buckner Mexico met Guillermina Santos Ventura.

She was sweeping dirt outside her meager home not far from the Buckner Family Hope Center® in the Xoxocotlán community of Oaxaca, Mexico. That's when her oldest son came out asking if they were going to have breakfast. With the door ajar, the Buckner staff noticed the precarious conditions the family was living in and moved by what they saw, the team knew they could help.

Guellermina had grown up in an authoritarian situation with low self-esteem. That led to shyness and a fear of socializing. 

The answer was building a family transformation plan focusing on the family's desire to improve their economic situation through financial empowerment. All possible with support from the Family Hope Center. 

The result is a small grocery store attached to the one room where the family lives.

Meet the Cruz Santos family in the latest Buckner Today and read their inspiring story of growth and transformation.
