Elsa Isabela
View original language description ↓
In my neighborhood they know me as Chela and I am very famous for the extremely rich flour tortillas that I make. I began my business five years ago and with experience and the good flavor of my tortillas, I also sell tortillas filled with beans, butter and cheese, which in our counrty is known as "baleadas," and that people prefer. Also I have managed to sell to the owners of general stores, who then sell them in their businesses; for that demand I need to buy a machine to help me with production, so I could produce more and obtain better earnings to better help my family.

Tambien he logrado vender a señores dueños de pulperias quienes venden en sus negocios, por la demanda necesito comprar una maquina para que me ayude con la elaboracion, asi podre producir mas y obtener mejores ganancias para ayudar mas a mi familia.
