Angela Romelia
Ángela Romelia, 33, is the mother of two children aged 8 and 3 years. She’s from the town of San Juan and she inherited her business from her mother who started it 35 years ago; it’s selling tortillas at home. Thanks to the attention she pays it she’s managed to get several people from the neighborhood and various food stalls in the market to order from her for two daily meals which means she processes two quintals worth of corn that means daily sales of between 700 and 800 quetzals. She now needs capital to buy firewood in large amounts because due to the approaching winter she needs to stockpile enough in order not to have any business problems in the days to come.
