Isabel Cristina's story

Isabel Cristina is a hardworking, dedicated and entrepreneurial woman. She is 43 years old and sells "nacatamales", a local food made with pork, dough, spices, potatoes, rice and others (similar to a tamale). She normally sells them on weekends. At first she butchered the meat but it took a lot of effort si she decided to purchase it instead to prepare the product.

Isabel sells her "nacatamales" in Tipitaba since there is more competition. She dreams of opening a small shop. She has five children. One of them is under her care and helps her with the business in his free time.
