Maria Guadalupe's story

Maria Guadalupe G. works making and selling ‘tamal de elote’ (a dish made with yellow corn, sometimes with a sweet or dry taste). Her daughter helps her sell them in the area of San Francisco and Maria has a stand in the Zonal Belén market where she already has regular customers.

Every day she purchases raw materials to use and on weekends, she sells tripe soup. She will use the loan to purchase firewood, sugar, oil, corn, and a thermos to transport the atol. She needs the earnings to cover the household and family expenses.
