Delmy Jaquelina's story

Delmy Jaquelina P. B., 43, lives in Choluteca’s El Barquito neighborhood; she sells snacks like tacos, enchiladas, baleadas (wheat flour tortilla, often quite thick, folded in half and filled with mashed fried beans), tortillas with quesillo (a cottage cheese-like cheese), etc. She also sells soft-drinks, juices, water in cans and plastic bags. She states that she is very happy because her business grows a little every day.

She will use the funds to buy ingredients to make the snacks as well as soft-drinks, juices and water. One of her highest-selling items is the soft-drinks because the weather in Choluteca is very warm and many people buy soft-drinks to quench their thirst.

Profits obtained will be used to cover household expenses.
