Guadalupe
Sra. Guadalupe lives in the town of Tierra Blanca, better known as the “Bride of the Sun”, in the State of Veracruz. The area is known for its livestock industry and the abundant summer heat that can reach as high as 54°C. Doña Guadalupe is 50 years old and has a high school education. She is a single mother of a 25-year-old daughter who is studying to become a teacher.


Doña Guadalupe says that more than 30 years ago she started her business selling Mexican street food, such as empanadas, tostadas, “chiles rellenos” (stuffed chili peppers), tamales, tacos, plantains, potatoes, and “garnachas” (tortillas topped with shredded meat, cheese, and lettuce). She sells her food on Saturdays and Sundays. When she started her business, Guadalupe used her income to help her mother with the household expenses. Now that she has a daughter, she is able to pay for her education and help her get ahead.


Guadalupe needs this loan to invest in the purchase of chili peppers, tomatoes, meat, corn, oil, cream, cheese, onions, plantains, potatoes, tortillas, and natural gas so that she can prepare Mexican street food to sell.


Guadalupe sets up a table and a portable stove in front of her house so that she can prepare food at night. Her friends and neighbors come by to purchase these snacks to eat as a family meal.


Doña Guadalupe hopes that this loan will help her business prosper. She wants her daughter to finish her degree so that she will have a better quality of life.
