A loan of $900 helped to buy products like flour, cooking oil, salt, and vegetables to make empanadas.


Eliseo's story

Eliseo has had an empanada stand at his house for three years. Eliseo has the machinery to prepare the dough for the empanadas. This helps him to give better quality service to the consumers of his product.

He is requesting a loan for 36,750 pesos in order to buy flour and cooking oil to prepare the dough. He will also buy vegetables to fill the empanadas.

Empanadas are consumed a lot in many areas of the city. They are consumed at any time, but they are especially consumed in the morning for breakfast. They are consumed in the afternoon and evening as a snack, and they are even consumed as dinner.

He offers a variety of fillings like ground beef, chicken, vegetables, cheese, and ham and eggs. The empanadas can be filled with a combination of these products or with only one.

His wish for the future is to grow and to have a stable business outside of his area. This way he will expand his marketing area.
