Magaly Elisabeth's story

Magaly is a Kubo.financiero borrower. This is his story:

My name is Magaly, I am 31 years old. I am a very responsible person, I have been married for 8 years and have 3 beautiful children ages 6, 4 and 1.

I live with my in-laws and fortunately I have a very good relation with them. I used to work for a company, but when I started having babies, it became impossible, so I started making tamales (mexican food made of corn) and sell them. I am a fighter because I want to build a safety net for my children and because of that I'm willing to work very hard now that I am young. Of course, I also take very seriously my responsibility as a wife, mother and partner.

Fortunately, my business is growing rapidly and I need the loan to build a cellar where I can put the corn leafs and other inputs that I use to make the tamales such as: chile, chocolate, cinamon and other species. In the future, I'll like to buy a mill. By building the cellar, I will be able to buy inputs in larger quantities and get better prices. I know this is a big expense, but I am confident that my business will benefit greatly and I will be able to pay the loan.

I will like to add, that I start cooking the tamales at 3 AM, because the tamales need to be warm and ready at 6 AM. I started my business 4 years ago and my biggest accomplishment is that it has been growing since.
