Daira Patricia's story

Daira Patricia is 39 years old. She is a single mother, with three children, who are 17, 15 and 8 years old, who attend high school and primary school. They live in their own home in Crucita a few minutes from the capital, which is a small fishing town, where the main sources of income are artisanal and industrial fishing and agriculture.
Daira Patricia works making fast food such as hamburgers, hot dogs, empanadas, cheese sticks, corviches (plantain stuffed with seafood), soda and water. She sells these from a stand located near a soccer field where many people come to enjoy various sports. She works more on the weekend when more people come.
During this global crisis she has had financial difficulties as she had to close her food stand and couldn't make sales, but now little by little it is restarting from her home with deliveries to people's homes so that she can continue generating income.
With this new loan she will buy supplies to continue preparing and selling food.
Her dreams are to have a mini market to move forward with helping her children and that they will have good health.
