Ma Aurelia
María Aurelia is separated and has shown herself to be a strong and tenacious woman who despite the world economic situation has known how to get ahead with her 3 children. She started her business selling gorditas (stuffed corn cakes) 4 years ago. Señora María Aurelia tells us that she started out with 2 kilos of flour and little by little grew the business into what is now called by customers "Gorditas de la Quince" ("The Fat Ones of Number 15")which in reality is not its offical name, as the business is located on a street of that name.

She has prospered so much that she has even been able to build her own house and a place to use as a restaurant. However, currently she wants the loan to start building the kitchen close to the restaurant as she is till making the food, stews and the gorditas, in her own kitchen at home which hampers her as she has to walk to the cart where her daughter prepares the food. To realize her project, she needs to buy cement, sand, rods and pay the builder.

María Aurelia es separada y que se que ha demostrado así misma ser una mujer fuerte y tenaz que a pesar de la situación económica de cómo esta en este mundo ha sabido salir adelante con sus tres hijos. Desde hace cuatro años inicio un negocio de la venta de gorditas, comenta la señora María Aurelia que empezó con dos kilos de harina y poco a poco fue creciendo el negocio en el que ahora es llamado por los clientes “Gorditas de la Quince” que en realidad no es el nombre oficial, por que se encuentra en una calle de nuestra ciudad con ese nombre. La señora ha ido prosperando tanto que hasta construyo su vivienda y un lugar para usarlo de restaurante, pero en este momento el préstamo lo quiere para comenzar a construir la cocina cerca del negocio ya que la comida la sigue preparando en la cocina de su casa donde prepara los guisos y las gorditas de harina lo cual se dificulta por que tiene que caminar para la carrucha donde su hija es quien las prepara. Para realizar su proyecto necesita comprar cemento, arena, varilla, y pagar el albañil.
