Carmelo
Señor Carmelo is 38 years old. He studied through high school, is married and has a one-year-old child.

He tells us that a little more than five years ago, the head of his community's elementary school offered him the opportunity to sell food at recess, and he accepted. Since that time, he has been selling Mexican snacks (empanadas, gorditas, tacos, tortas, tostadas, tacos dorados and enchiladas), soft drinks and candy in the elementary school on Mondays through Fridays. He also tell us that on weekends he sells pork. He tells us that the first day, he goes out to take orders from his friends and neighbors in the community, and the following day he allocates the pork among the orders and receives payment for his products.

He needs this loan to invest in buying chili peppers, tomatoes, onions, meat, tortillas, corn, cabbage, lettuce, salt, candy, soda and pork in order to make his sales.

He hopes that with this loan his business will succeed, as he wants to create a good future for his family and in the future to pay for college for his child.
