My name is Adriana, I am 22 years old and live in Iztapalapa with my husband and a 4 year old son. We live in a house with other relatives.
I started working five years ago selling shoes and clothes through a catalog. But three years ago, I decided to start a food stall in which I sell different types of tacos such as: suadero, longaniza, tripa, maciza, cabeza (beef brisket, spanish sausage, tripe, pork shoulder and pork head). Sales are growing because people like the flavor of my tacos and because I have my stall in a good location outside a large social housing project.
I will use the money, to buy some tables,chairs and benches that way I will be able to provide better service to more clients.
My biggest accomplishment has been starting my business and growing the sales.
