María Cándida's story

Maria learned how to make beef tripe stew from a young age, and now her daughter helps her with this. She sells on Saturdays and Wednesdays, rising at dawn to begin preparations.

Maria needs this loan to buy more tripe, vegetables, condiments, lemons, etc. to continue selling beef tripe stew.

Maria hopes to continue having the strength to run this business and that her daughter can continue to help her.
