A loan of $625 helped to buy ingredients.


Elida's story

Elida is a very hardworking person. She’s 50 years old and married to Florencio; they have three children who are all married now. She has been making food to sell for 12 years.

She says that she decided to start this good business because it’s very profitable and produces good profits that help her help her husband with household expenses and to have better economic solvency and living standard. The loan she got will be used to buy more ingredients like: chilies, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, corn, salt, oil, meats, chicken, rice, beans, etc.

Elida says that one of the goals she has for her business is to invest very much into it because her goal is to make it grow still more because she wants to enlarge it and to buy more tables and chairs to improve and increase her profits.

She is very grateful to Fundación Realidad but above all to the lenders for the trust and support they are providing her because she says that thanks to this help she now has a better business and quality of life.
