Elisa
View original language description ↓
Elisa is married and her husband works as as a superintendent in a primary school. They have three children: Elisa Yesenia who is 18 years old and a student, Elizabeth, 14 years old and in secondary school, and Yahir who is 5 years old. She started her business because they needed additional income to meet the family’s living expenses, given that at times her husband’s salary was not enough and the children were in school. She started in 1992 with a small store, but because she had to start working as an employee at another enterprise she had to close it. Afterwards, in March of 2002, she started a business selling tacos and cakes from a small cart that her husband bought for her. She runs the business only at night, but it is going well because she has located it in the area where she lives which is well-traveled by many people.



She needs a loan of $725 USD, to be repaid over six months, to buy more ingredients with which to make her tacos and cakes so she can continue to serve her customers.

Elisa es casada su esposo trabaja como intendente en una escuela primaria y tienen 3 hijos: Elisa Yesenia de 18 años, estudiante de preparatoria; Elizabeth de 14 años, estudiante de secundaria y Yahir de 5 años
Inició el negocio porqué necesitaban un ingreso extra para cubrir nuestras necesidades como familia, ya que a veces no les alcanzaba con el sueldo de su esposo y sus hijos ya estaban estudiando.
Comenzó en el año de 1992 con una tiendita, pero como tuvo que entrar a trabajar como empleada en una empresa, la cerró. Después, en Marzo de 2002 inició el negocio de tacos y tortas con un carrito para tacos que le compró su esposo, este negocio es solo por las noches, pero les va bien porqué lo puso en un lugar de la colonia donde vive y por donde pasan muchas personas.


Ella necesita un préstamo por US $725 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar más materia prima que le permita seguir elaborando sus tacos y tortas y poder seguir atendiendo a sus clientes.
