Guadalupe Indira's story

Guadalupe is a humble inhabitant of Estelí. She is 25 years old and has one child in her care. She works selling enchiladas, one of the most popular foods in the city. She started her business with her own money, which she earned working as a domestic employee for others. With the money she had saved, she decided to start her own business, which she has now owned for one year. She expects to continue investing in her business.

She will use this loan to purchase flour, meat, tortillas, oil, vegetables, and other items, which are the ingredients necessary to make rich enchiladas. The loan will help her because she will be able to invest more in her inventory so she can satisfy the needs of her customers. In the future, she plans to expand the size of her business and have a buffet of traditional foods so that she can offer a variety of foods to her customers. Her next goal is to have her own house so that she can be independent and succeed.
