Maria Hortencia
María Hortencia currently sells fried pork rinds and tamales that she makes at home to then sell in the street market. Her project is to be able to also sell "quesadillas" [grilled tortillas stuffed with cheese and other ingredients] and she wants to buy the griddle for these items and have more variety of food available to increase income and customers. She does not have all the capital she needs and this is why she’s calling on us to support her.
