Edelmira
View original language description ↓
Early in 2003, because of her family, Edelmira decided to start a business selling tacos in a cart outside of her house so that she can help her family because her household was going through a financial crisis. During the day she would study, and at night she would set up her taco stand. Little by little she acquired customers until she managed to get an established locale. A year ago she had a son, to whom she would like to offer the best so he can have more opportunities in life. Currently she has two employees who help her in the business because she cannot tend to it by herself.


However, Edelmira would like to keep growing because there is a high demand for her tacos. This is why she is requesting a loan for US $750, which she is willing to pay in a period of 6 months. With this money Edelmira will be able to buy two griddles to make tacos quicker. With your help Edelmira will be able to support her child.


In the photos Edelmira is in the kitchen, in front of her is one griddle where they make tacos and behind her a table where they prepare them and the refrigerator.
