Eva is 34-years-old and is a single mother of 4 children: Lisbeth, who is 15; Yordan, who is 13; Víctor, who is 9; and Mileydi, who is 7.

Eva has sold food for 2 years now. She is from Juliaca, and since she didn't finish high school, she has had to work since then to support herself and her children when they arrived. She didn't have support from her husband, who abandoned her. Having 4 children isn't easy, and she had to put forth a lot of effort to give the four of them a good education. But the love that they give her strengthens her, and that is enough for her to keep going.

Her 4 children are her reason for living. She wants them to get ahead and to see them become professionals.

With the money she obtains from this loan, she will be able to purchase more furniture to make her customers more comfortable. She will also buy ingredients to make a larger variety of dishes.
