Luisa Amanda's story

Luisa is an enterprising woman, married with three handsome sons. She currently has her own fritanga [Mexican fried food] store, which she has had for 6 years. She has been selling and capturing clientele. She began with a small amount of savings, starting with small sales and a small menu which improved with financing, since she bought more products to make more food and have more variety in her dishes. She has the support of her husband who works as a driver. With her loans, she has been able to purchase plastic tables and chairs, and a roof to have better conditions, but she still needs to finish putting in zinc sheets, stone, sand and cement for the base and close it off in order to have a better space and greater hygiene in her food sales service.
