Magadalena Ernestina's story

Magdalena is an enterprising 75-year-old woman. Despite her advanced age, she is very hard-working and active since there is nothing that keeps her from moving forward. She lives with her son and granddaughter. She is single and raised her son alone and with effort. Magdalena makes artisanal quesadillas. Her quesadillas are the most delicious in the whole city. She sells orders of up to 100 quesadillas and people even place orders to be sent abroad to friends and family members. She has done this for more than 50 years. She learned it from her grandmother and what she taught has been very useful to Magdalena up to the present day. She also has a pharmacy that generates good profits for her. She is a clear example that age is not an obstacle to improving yourself and she has demonstrated it in the productive activities that she does. This enterprising woman needs a lot of help with this loan to buy ingredients such as fresh cheese, milk, flour, yeast, cream, eggs, sugar, etc. to make quesadillas, since she has a very big order for these end-of-year dates. She dreams that God will let her keep on living many more years to enjoy her family, since she thinks that life is beautiful and it is worth living.
