Edith Roxana
Edith, 26, lives with her life partner and four children. For the last three years she’s been preparing traditional meals like turnovers, tamales and fried manioc, among others. She learned this activity from her spouse’s grandmother who taught her. She used to sell cosmetics. To get her ingredients Edith has to take a one-hour bus trip to a city in the east of the country to be able to make her purchases.

Edith is asking Fundación Campo for a loan to finish building her snack bar and to be able to buy some ingredients to sell too. The snack bar is located on the shore of a lake that’s visited by many people because it’s a tourist site.

With the completion of her snack bar Edith will be able to safeguard her products and better tend to her customers because she used to sell going door to door on foot. In the future, Edith would like to make her snack bar grow into a small restaurant to improve her income this way since her snack bar would be more accessible to customers. Edith would like to expand the site in the future and improve it so that it will go from being a snack bar to being an eatery and be better organized to provide better customer service.

La señora Edith tiene 26 años de edad; vive con su compañero de vida y sus 4 hijos.

La señora Edith se dedica desde hace 3 años a la elaboración de comida típica tales como empanadas, tamales, yuca frita, entre otros. Ella aprendió esta actividad de la abuela de su compañero de vida, quien le enseño. Ella antes se dedicaba a la venta de cosméticos.

Para adquirir sus insumos la señora Edith tiene que trasladarse durante una hora en bus a una ciudad de la zona oriental del país y así poderlos comprar.

La señora Edith esta solicitando un préstamo a Fundacion Campo para terminar la construcción de su negocio y además poder comprar algunos insumos para la venta. El cafetín esta situado a la orilla de una laguna la cual es visitada por muchas personas ya que es un sitio turístico.

Con la terminación de su cafetín la señora Edith podrá resguardar los productos y atender mejor a los clientes, ya que ella antes los vendía yendo de casa en casa a pie. En un futuro a la señora Edith le gustaria crecer su negocio de un cafetin a un pequeñno restaurante. De esta manera ella mejorara sus ingresos ya que su local esta más accesible para los clientes.

A la señora Edith le gustaría en un futuro ampliar el local y mejorarlo para pasar de un cafetín a un comedor ya mas organizado y dar mejor atención a los clientes
