Alicia Betty's story

Alicia is 47 years old and sells a traditional dish in Ecuador called “fritada”. With effort and dedication, she has been able to maintain the tradition of selling “fritada” dishes made of pork and grains.

Alicia starts very early preparing “fritada” for her established customers. She has many aspirations for her business, which includes continuing to make more traditional dishes. Now she wants to use this loan to buy construction materials for making improvements to her home such as cement, sand, and blocks.
