Enia Del Carmen
Enia, 34, is an unassuming and hardworking merchant. She lives in the city of Leon, and is married with 5 children. She has a business selling fried pork rinds, products that she makes herself and sells from her house. In addition, she has a small stand in the central market of the city of Leon. She has had this family business for 9 years, and her older children support her by helping with the cleaning and attending to customers. Her husband also supports her with the earnings that he obtains from his business repairing bicycles. Enia combines her activities as a merchant and a mother, since two of her children are 3 and 2 years old, and the work in raising them is not easy. For this reason, the support she gets from her family is very important to her. Enia needs a loan to buy equipment and supplies to make the fried pork rinds: she needs a large steel pot to cook her products, and she needs to buy firewood. With this investment, she will be able to acquire more raw materials at wholesale. She will also replace the large pot that she has, because hers is very old and worn out and is not big enough to hold the quantity of food that she cooks in order to make the tasty fried pork rinds that her customers prefer. In the future, she plans to gradually make repairs to improve the condition of her business premises. Her next goal is to get a good education for her children so that they can become professionals.
