Abigail Elizabeth
Abigail is 49 years old. She lives with her husband with whom she works in order to get ahead and live a financially stable life. Abigail owns her home where she makes the meals that she sells.

Every afternoon she goes in front of her home to sell fried yucca and “atoll chuco”, which is a traditional hot drink in the country, made of fermented corn, salt, beans and other ingredients. This is a drink that is in high demand from customers and it is accompanied by French bread and chile. Abigail is an expert in food preparation and consequently has many steady customers who take the time every day to drink atoll and eat fried yucca.

She is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL in order to buy the basic ingredients to make “atoll chuco” as well as French bread and chile and also to purchase yucca wholesale and other vegetables. Thus she can increase her inventory and earn more income.
