Edith Roxana's story

Edith, 26, lives with her life partner and four children. For the last three years she’s been preparing traditional meals like turnovers, tamales and fried manioc, among others. She learned this activity from her spouse’s grandmother who taught her. She used to sell cosmetics. To get her ingredients Edith has to take a one-hour bus trip to a city in the east of the country to be able to make her purchases.

Edith is asking Fundación Campo for a loan to finish building her snack bar and to be able to buy some ingredients to sell too. The snack bar is located on the shore of a lake that’s visited by many people because it’s a tourist site.

With the completion of her snack bar Edith will be able to safeguard her products and better tend to her customers because she used to sell going door to door on foot. In the future, Edith would like to make her snack bar grow into a small restaurant to improve her income this way since her snack bar would be more accessible to customers. Edith would like to expand the site in the future and improve it so that it will go from being a snack bar to being an eatery and be better organized to provide better customer service.
