Ingrid Leticia
Ingrid is 26 years old, single, and she lives with her cousin. Her mother immigrated to the United States with the goal of finding more economic stability and a home. Ingrid works as a coordinator for social and religious events, and she decorates the locations where the events take place. Generally, they take place in a well-known hotel situated on the beaches of El Cuco. She has worked with the hotel since 2009, and her job has provided her the income necessary to maintain her business and to finish her degree in information technology.

All of the supplies and materials that she uses are found in the a city that is 45 kilometers from the city in which she lives. The temporary workers that she hires are from the beach area, and they have been trained by state institutions and NGOs in customer service.

Ingrid will invest this loan in her business: $200 for decoration materials and $800 to buy tables and chairs. With this investment, her teams and services will be of better quality. Sometimes the tables and chairs that she rents are very worn down, and they don't provide the image, presentation and feel required for such events. Because of the good job that she does, Ingrid is becoming well-known, and she hopes to grow her business and to provide her services in other high-class hotels.
