Magalis Del Socorro
Magalis, 24, is from Granada. She's married and the mother of one child, age 3. She's a merchant and makes a living selling "fritos" (some of the most traditional dishes in the city), a business she has owned for more than a year.

She started in business when she was very young, working with her mother selling vegetables. Later her mother decided to go to Costa Rica in search of a better standard of living for her family, so she stopped selling vegetables. In time she got married and decided to set up her own business selling fritos. She's very satisfied because this business generates daily profits for her and she has steady customers. Her expectation is to make her business grow.

She's requesting the loan to buy meat, Maseca [a brand of flour], onions, potatoes, etc. She thinks the loan will help her buy all the ingredients she needs to make her delicious fritos. Her goal is to increase her sales to get better profits and be able to improve the infrastructure of her house.
