Andrea
Andrea is 54 years old and completed her high school education in the city. She is married and her husband works as a day laborer. They have a son who is in his first year of high school. Her husband and son are the only ones living with her.

Sra. Andrea has a business in which she sells food. She started this venture two months ago and came up with the idea of selling food on her own since there are no formal eateries in her town where people can enjoy a hearty meal. Andrea has always enjoyed cooking since being taught by her mother at a young age.

She previously worked as a tailor, but she occasionally experienced back pain whenever she was seated at a sewing machine. For this reason, she decided to pursue another line of work. Her business is set up in her house and she involves her husband and her son whenever they are at home.

The loan she is requesting from CrediCampo will be used to buy one flat top grill for making “pupusas” (stuffed tortillas), a blender, ingredients for preparing food, five rolls of aluminum foil, one quintal (100 kg) of corn, and 50 pounds of beans. This will enable her to generate more income so that she can cover her household needs.

Andrea intends to expand her business with her earnings as well as purchase a heated buffet table so that she can serve hot food to her customers. She also intends for her son to become a professional so that he can make it on his own, which is an important part of integrating into society.
