Olga  Maria
Olga is a humble businesswoman who lives in the city of León. She is 36 year old, married, and mother of two children, ages 11 and 5. She makes and sells “tortillas”, “frijoles”, and “cuajadas” (a dessert made from flavored milk and rennet). She has been doing this activity for nine years from her humble kitchen, made of stones and old sheet metal. She only completed primary school because she dedicated most of her life to working to help provide food for the household. Her husband is a bricklayer and contributes the small amount he earns toward the household expenses.

She is requesting this loan to purchase firewood, beans, “cuajadas”, and corn. This will help her obtain ingredients to work and enable her to diversify her business by offering breakfast to her customers. In addition to hot tortillas, her customers will find delicious “frijoles fritos (fried beans) con cuajadas” for breakfast.
