Ysabel
View original language description ↓
Ysabel’s big dreams of getting ahead demonstrate the steadfastness with which she wants to overcome any obstacle. She is 51 years old, the mother of two school-aged children and, together with her husband, has more than 15 years of experience running a cooking business. Ysabel and her husband started selling prepared foods door-to-door using a bike that they had and a small cooktop. The high quality and great care with which they prepared their products led to increased sales, allowing them to rent their own space and a better kitchen. Each day, Ysabel and her husband rise early in the morning, get their children ready for school, and immediately thereafter go to the market to buy the basic ingredients for their foods. They cook during the afternoon, and sell their products until 10 pm. Their meals include "salchipapas" (fried potatoes), “salchipollos” (a chicken and fried potato dish), hamburgers and other fast foods. Their goal is to have a poultry store, and in the meantime they will continue putting forth great effort toward their work. Ysabel is seeking this loan to invest in a roasting oven. Please help support Ysabel and her husband and be a part of making their plans a reality.
