Aucilia's story

Aucilia is a woman of 60 years of age and she has many aspirations to grow her sales of fast food in the coming years. Her story began as a young girl working in the fast food business with rolls, corn tortillas and other items. She works with her husband beginning very early at 5 in the morning to make her product for the daily sales. Her husband is in charge of street sales and he has no difficulty in that. They are in a common law marriage and her husband helps her. She has children, they are all grown.

Her greatest dream is to grow old with her husband having a more profitable and stable business. Because of this she wants a loan for her fast food business to buy corn, vegetables, and corn for rolls, humitas [similar to a tamale] and corn tortillas, etc.
