Patricia Jeannette's story

Patricia Jeannette R. V., 41, lives in San Juan Opico, La Libertad department, with her three minor children, who are in school. For the last 9 years, Patricia has sold prepared, typical meals, such as: tamales, enchiladas and fried yucca. Her eatery is strategically located in San Juan Opico's market which receives many visitors daily. She also has regular customers who work in the market itself selling different products. Patricia needs financing to buy cooking oil, rice, corn, vegetables, among other ingredients, which are the most used in her meals. Patricia has always known how to get ahead on her own, working hard to provide her children with everything they need, because Patricia is a single mother. She feels challenged daily with being better and finding the way to improve her business so that her little ones will never lack anything.
