Myrna is 38 years old, married, and has three children. She has 10 years experience running her own small eating establishment where she prepares and sells food. It was her mother who taught her this business.
Myrna is requesting a loan from Fundación Campo to buy rice, sugar, beans, oil and vegetables so that she can expand her business. Demand is high as she is located near a school and both pupils and teachers come to buy food from her. By increasing her sales, Myrna will be able to provide her family with financial stability. She will be able to send her children to school and then later to university so that they can become professionals.
Myrna tiene 38 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene tres hijos. Ella cuenta con 10 años de experiencia en administrar su propio comedor (elaboración y venta de alimentos); su madre fue quien le enseño ese negocio.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar arroz, azúcar, frijoles, aceite y verduras; para ampliar la elaboración y venta de alimentos. Su demanda es grande, debido a que esta cerca de una escuela y llegan ahí los alumnos y docentes a comprar comida donde ella. Al aumentar su venta, podrá brindar estabilidad económica a su grupo familiar para enviar a sus hijos a la escuela y poder enviarlos a la universidad para que sean profesionales.
