Gertrudis Del Socorro
Gertrudis, 67, is a single mother; she has four adult children. She earns her living selling food and natural beverages in the city of Granada, an activity she started ten years ago when she started out with a plastic basket, two tablecloths, manioc and cabbage to make ‘vigorón’, [a cabbage salad known as curtido (chopped cabbage, tomatoes, onions, and chili pepper marinated in vinegar and salt), boiled manioc, and chicharrones (fried pork with skin or with meat) wrapped in plantain leaves],a traditional dish in the city.

Today, her food is very popular, especially her traditional dishes and her beverages. She’d like to have a locale to sell traditional food offering variety to her clientele. She’s asking for a loan to buy fruit, manioc, cabbage, tomatoes and banana leaves which are part of the raw materials she uses to make her food. This will allow her to have working capital and will give her business a boost.
