Sor Miriam's story

The economic needs faced by the family of Sor Miriam -- made up of her husband and their two children -- were the impetus for this entrepreneur to start her own business making traditional arepas [corn cakes]. Although she admits that the profits from this source of family income are not large, at least the household expenses are covered. Currently, Sor needs a loan to carry out some improvements to her work area, since in order to continue selling her product, she will have to comply with some basic health standards.
