Reina Alicia
Reina has a food business selling tamales and “pupusas” (a thick corn tortilla stuffed with cheese, fried pork rind, chicken, or refried beans). She lives in San Francisco Gotera in the Morazán department. She is 41 years old, and she lives with her husband and their two daughters. Tatiana, age 10, is in fourth grade. Diana, age 14, is in seventh grade in school.

Reina has had this business for eight years. She has a cousin who helps her wait on customers. Her daughters also help her when they are out of classes. She tends her business from 5:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. She learned to cook from who mother, who taught her perfectly. This business has the disadvantage in that the products spoil if they are not consumed immediately.

She is currently requesting a loan to buy products like rice, beans, meat, and drinks in order to prepare that food that she sells daily. This loan will help her in that during the season for parties in the municipality a lot of people go to the fair. She will take advantage of this and offer more food.

Her dreams are to have an ample eatery with room for a lot of people. Also, she wants to get a lot of earnings in order to cover the household necessities. Additionally, she dreams of helping her daughters with their education so that they can become professionals.
