Ramona lives with two children who are 15 and 12 years old. She is responsible for covering the family expenses. Ramona works selling tamales, pupusas, and snacks. She has been running this business for 10 years. She works every day without a set schedule.

With the financing that she has requested, she will be able to have financial resources to purchase corn, pork rinds, quesillo, vegetables, chicken, etc. so to have at hand raw materials to make tamales and other foods. She hopes that the investment will be of help to her to strengthen her business.

Her aspiration is to increase her level of sales to generate more income with which to be able to sustain her household.
