Ilse Berman
Ilse, 33, is an enterprising, micro businesswoman who has had an eatery for ten years located near the capital’s central cemetery. She’s married and has children who are 13, 4, 9 and 2 years of age. Her husband and one of her older children helps her with the business. She started out selling enchiladas in a cart on the sidewalk near the cemetery and then they gave her a small stand to protect herself from the sun and the rain. Now, she has a larger stand that she’s turned into an eatery with tables and chairs; it’s very well-known in the sector. She will use the loan because it’s a custom in the country for people to visit their dead on November 2 and she wants to buy natural flowers and to buy a freezer, soft-drinks and basic grains for her eatery.
