My name is Irene. I am 25 years old and live with my partner in my parents house.
I started working with my grandmother 10 years ago, we used to sell candies and stationary outside an elementary school. 3 years ago, I started my own business selling roasted chicken in a rented local at the Solidaridad Market.
My biggest accomplishment is sending my daughter to school and having some financial stability.
I am calling the project Rostisería Poi-Pio and believe in providing my clients with great flavor at cheap prices. I will use the loan to buy a larger oven, that way I will be able to attend more clients and grow my business.
