A loan of $700 helped to buy ingredients for making empanadas, tamales and French fries.


Margoth Isabel's story

Margoth lives in her own home together with her 21-year-old son, her daughter-in-law and her grandson. Her business is preparing snacks (French fries, fried cassava, empanadas, tamales, etc.). She makes her sales as an itinerant street vendor near her home. Thanks to her sales, and with the help of her son, she has managed to cover her household expenses. Margoth is requesting a loan to buy ingredients that she uses in preparing her snacks such as oil, potatoes, corn (for the tamales), plantains, etc. This will allow her to continue supporting her household and cover any expenses that may occur.
