She has worked since very young and later with the goal of generating an income for her children’s education. First, she began making clothes and then she bought a stall in a market in the area to sell eggs. When she became affiliated with Manuela Ramos in the year 2000, she decided to look for a business she could operate at home. Thus she decided on the sale of barbecued meat and other pre-cooked food, tasks which she does in the afternoons.

Currently she has a broad customer base who seeks her out because of her friendliness and the good service she provides, as well as her delicious food. She has moved ahead in her business and in this way makes an income to take care of household expenses.

With this new loan of 3,000 soles she will buy products to supply her business such as live chickens, seasoning ingredients, plantains, 1 sack of cassava, corn, rice and 10 sacks of charcoal to grill her barbecues in order to stock all her supplies so she will have everything she needs.

Josefa is a hardworking and enterprising woman. Her dream is to have a business that grows through adding new products. She is very grateful to Movimiento Manuela Ramos for enabling her to make some of her dreams a reality.
