Glenda Azucena's story

Glenda has a fast food place, where she sells things like french fries, hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. She also makes puya or mondongo soup, which is made of beef tripe and nerves with vegetables and spices. She has had her business for a year and a half. She works serving and also has the support of an assistant. She works from 6:30 am to 3:00 pm.. She learned this job from her relatives. Her advantage is that the business is located in her house, and she also sells in the downtown of her city. She lives with her husband and four children, who are 15, 12, 10 and 4 years old. The family depends on the business to subsist. She is requesting a loan to buy bread, potatoes, dressings, spices, firewood, etc., in order to prepare for the sale of her products. She will have what she needs in order to give her customers better service and to increase the chance of new income. It does not represent risk, because it is backed by her experience; and currently, in her area there are no problems with crime. Her objectives are to keep the number of her customers and to continue working to have financial stability, which will help her have a more decent family life style.
