María Concepción
View original language description ↓
Twenty years ago she started with a griddle, 10kg. of barbacoa (slow-cooked beef meat), and all the enthusiasm in the world, to sell barbacoa to support her young daughter who is now 20 years old and other daughters who are still studying. After much hard work to get a place in her neighborhood, she started selling menudo to have more variety in her business.

However, the battle to support her two youngest daughters is still ongoing, and that is why she is requesting a loan for US $925 to be paid in a period of 6 months. With this money she will be able to buy more merchandise to make more barbacoa and menudo and increase her sales. With your help, Maria will be able to support her daughters and give them the education that they need so much to become good people.
