Amelia
Doña Amelia is 42 years old and only has a high school education. She is married to Sr. Rafael, who works as a chauffeur. They have a son named David who is attending preparatory school. Amelia and her family live in the community of Tetela, which is in the State of Oaxaca. This town is located in an area known for growing sugar cane and is 15 minutes away from the Don Pablo Machado sugar mill.


Doña Amelia says that three years ago she was concerned about helping her husband with the household expenses. She decided to start her own business selling Mexican street food such as empanadas, gorditas, tostadas, stuffed chili peppers, tamales, potatoes, and fried plantains. Amelia sells her food from a small stand at her house that faces the highway. The name of her business is “Antojitos Don Chipotle”. She only sells on the weekends, Friday through Sunday, starting at 7pm. Her neighbors say that her food is very flavorful.


Amelia needs this loan to invest in the purchase of onions, chili peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, meat, corn, tortillas, potatoes, plantains, oil, eggs, cabbage, cream cheese, and gas so that she can prepare and sell her street food. She hopes that this investment will help prosper her business. Amelia has plans to reinvest her earnings by remodeling and expanding her business.
