Ingrid Loreli's story

Ingrid is a young but very hard-working woman. She's twenty-one and married to Victor, who is from the countryside. They have two children, Abrahán and Adolfo, who are in their second and third year of school respectively. Ingrid has been selling Mexican antojitos for one year.

She says that she decided to start the small business because she was looking for a way to support her husband with household expenses and offer a better quality of life to her children. She'll use her loan to buy more ingredients, including oil, tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, meat, corn, salt, etc.

Ingrid says that one of her dreams is to make her small business grow. She wants to build a Mexican restaurant so she can make better dishes and offer a wider selection. That way she'll make more income and be able to assure her kids an education.

Ingrid is very glad for the huge help she's gotten from FRAC and Kiva lenders, because thanks to them she'll now enjoy a better standard of living and a good business.
