Maria Del Rosario
In the state of Oaxaca there is a community called San Miguel Soyaltepec, which has a large lake which provides abundant fishing and work each year. It’s also known for the presence of the Cerro de Oro hydroelectric dam.

Maria Del Rosario L. lives in this community. She is 24 years old, has a three- year high school education, and is married to Jorge who works on high tension power lines. They have two children who attend the local elementary school.

Ms. Rosario tells us that she felt the need to go to work three years ago in order to help her husband with the household expenses and to help pay for their children’s education. One day she was invited to sell food during the local elementary school recess and she accepted. She’s been working there since then, selling Mexican food (empanadas, crunchy tacos, tostadas, sandwiches, gorditas, and enchiladas). She also sells dinner from her home in the evenings on weekends. She is a very hard working woman and tells us, “I don’t like to sit around waiting for money to fall from the sky. I like working hard to get my family ahead.”

She needs this loan to buy tomatoes, peppers, onions, corn, meat, tortillas, potatoes, eggs, beans, bananas, gas, and cooking oil to make her food and then sell it.

She expects that this investment in her business will bring her good earnings. She also wants to give her children a good life and for them to go to school and have good careers.
