Angelica O. is a very determined woman with a strong desire to improve herself. Amazingly, 40 long years ago she started her business making and selling tortillas in a section of the central market of Chinandga. She started with little capital that she invested on her own to purchase a wooden table for making tortillas. Nowadays her greater need is to purchase corn for making the tortillas.

Angelica has completed loans with Ceprodel (8 loans) and according to her account, they have given her of a lot of benefit in that she has acquired larger quantities of materials for making tortillas. In addition she has bought beans to prepare and sell in her own location.

Sorprendentemente, desde hace 40 largos años inició su negocio de elaboración y venta de tortillas en un tramo del mercado central de Chinandga. Inició con poco capital que lo invirtió de manera personal para la compra de una mesa de madera para elaborar las tortillas. Hoy en día su mayor necesidad es la adquisición de maíz para la elaboración de las tortillas.
