View original language description ↓
Since four years, Flor sells food outside of the market. Before, she used to help another women but she decided to establish her own business. Therefore, Flor leaves her home in a small cart every morning to sell food from 9am to 13.30pm.

Flor requests a loan to buy cooking utensils as cutlery and pots. Flor would like to increase her sales by also selling cracklings.

Translated from Spanish by Jimena Almendares Leistner, Kiva Volunteer.

Flor vende comida afuera del mercado desde hace 4 años. Antes ella ayudaba a otra señora en este tipo de ventas, fue así que decidió poner su propio negocio. Flor sale a vender todos los días en su carreta desde las 9 de la mañana hasta la 1.30 de la tarde.

Los préstamos que ha pedido le han servido para comprar sus utensilios de cocina como cubiertos y ollas. A Flor le gustaría ampliar sus ventas y ofrecer chicharrones.
