Caguas, PR, Puerto Rico / Food

Roberto's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped us to pay for raw material inventory and social media marketing.

Roberto's story

I am the middle of three brothers. We were all born and raised in Puerto Rico from a Puerto Rican father and a Mexican mother. As kids, our parents instructed in us both cultures and we used to spend 3 months out of every year living in Mexico. This is how we got closer to our beloved grandma Lolita. She truly was a very loving person and a great cook. There is nothing better like eating at grandma's place, right? As we grew older, finances changed at home and we had to leave Puerto Rico after graduation. After many years of living in the United States mainland, I decided to return to Puerto Rico and follow my gut feeling of starting my own business. I invited my brothers to join me, work stronger as a family and bring the authentic Mexican flavor to Puerto Rico. Even with the economic situation in Puerto Rico we have embraced the opportunity to become entrepreneurs and do the difference for our island's economy while providing jobs and helping others. My dream is to become an entrepreneur with several business success stories, bring financial stability to our family and positively impact Puerto Rico and our world through my businesses.
