Her business is selling the typical food of her region for which she uses the following main ingredients: yuca, corn, sweet potato, pumpkins, beans, beef, pork, and chicken. Every day at sunrise her customers already know the meal of the day, as the day determines the meal. Her meals are: barbecued steak, majao [Bolivian dish - eggs, rice, and plantains], shish kabob, peanut soup, chicken stew, arepas [corn tortillas], etc. She needs to improve her mini restaurant so that she can provide better customer service and receive more visits. She is doing this to have a higher income and improve the quality of life of her family. Her dream is to have a restaurant and she thinks is on the right path. For these reasons Maria is requesting a loan so that she can buy food in bulk to stock her mini restaurant.
