Ada Erlinda
Ada Erlinda T. M. is 32-years old and has 2 children. Ada's work activity is selling food, which she has done for more than 6 years. She started this business by setting up a table in front of her house at night and selling tacos, enchiladas, 'gallo pinto' (a dish of mixed rice and beans, called 'mottled rooster'), and eggs, among other things. Upon seeing that her family could live off the income from this work, she decided to seek financing to advance and help her with the business.

This financing that she requests is for working capital, to buy kitchen materials, staple grains, fruits and vegetables. Ada's dream is to prepare her children and her business, so that they improve.
