Manuela De Jesus's story

Manuela is 57 years old and she lives in El Transito, in the department of San Miguel. She lives with her mother and her two sisters. She sells tostadas, enchiladas, and seafood. She started out with the support of her mother and sisters who until now have been helping her run the business. She doesn't have a fixed work schedule and she has many years' experience.

She requests a loan to purchase ingredients such as bananas, yucca, and plastic bags. These are necessary to attend her clients. This investment will be a great help because it will permit her to keep working and generating an income for her family.

Manuela aspires to provide her clientele with better service by increasing production and preparing her foods every day a little better.
