María is a widow who sells food and began doing so 15 years ago when her mother passed away. She did not have a source of income, so her neighbors suggested that she begin selling gorditas and atole. Her economic situation was not very good, and her husband was unemployed, he helped as he could, but years later he also passed away. She continued with the business and it allows her to get ahead. Over time she consolidated and complemented the business and today she sells gorditas during the week and pozole on the weekends. (both are typical dishes) She has problems with her health and the work helps keep her from getting depressed. She is asking for this loan in order to be able to maintain her business and stock it with supplies and ingredients.
