Nora Jaqueline's story

Nora Jaqueline is married and has four adult children. She lives with her family in the canton of Jipijapa, known as Sultana del Café, where people are friendly and hard-working. This place has also suffered the ravages of the difficult pandemic provoked by Covid-19.

Nora Jaqueline is an entrepreneurial woman who, a few years ago, together with her husband and with great sacrifice, started a business selling hamburgers, hot dogs and Papipollo brand items. She stationed her cart outside of the transportation station in her town. Before the pandemic, her husband and children used to work there while she was at home helping with making the mayonnaise and seasoning the meat. They generated good income because many people traveled there, but now they were forced to close due to restrictions. The family was badly affected since that was their only source of income. However, with the help of one of the children, they began to deliver orders to homes and they moved forward.

Nora Jaqueline hopes that the situation improves so that she will be able to return to her usual post and sell more. Nora Jaqueline will invest this loan offered by the foundation to buy cold cuts, mayonnaise and meat for hamburgers so she can continue making home deliveries. Her dream is to be in good health so that she can keep working so she will be able to move forward.
