Sara Dolores
Sara is 40, single, and has two children. She prepares and sells food. In the morning, she sells breakfast: beans, eggs, plantains, and milk products. For lunch, she offers stews, fried chicken, seafood, stuffed chiles, and other dishes. In the afternoon, she prepares traditional dinners. Her business is strategically located in the city. Her mother taught her the profession and has helped her run the business for more than 15 years.

She is applying for a loan to Fundación Campo to buy 200 lbs. of rice, 200 lbs. of beans, 200 lbs. of sugar, 50 lbs of chicken, 50 lbs. of beef, and $100 of vegetables (chayote, potato, cabbage, tomato, onion, and chile) and to replace her old dining room furniture. The investment means she can offer more variety on her buffet. She will save her earnings to buy land where she will build a house and set up her business; now she is renting.
