A loan of $525 helped to purchase ingredients, including meat, tortillas and cabbage, to make tacos.

Magdali's story

Magdali is married to José Ariel, with whom she has three children, Edna Karina, 18, beautiful Areli, 13, and José Ignacio, 7.

She has a small taco business which she has run for 2 years and 4 months. She requests the loan to invest in purchasing ingredients, including meat, tortillas, cabbage, tomatoes and chiles, so she can make her tacos however her customers want them.

She says it was her mom who taught her to be independent because then when she married she would already know how to work at something and would be able to help her husband and have an income for her household. Her greatest dream is to get ahead and eventually expand her taco business so she can help her children with their education.
