Imelda De La Paz's story

Imelda is 31 years old and lives in the home of a family member with her husband and four children. She works making and selling snacks such as empanadas, enchiladas, fried yucca and potatoes, etc. Her business is located outside of her house. She has many customers because her products are very popular. She uses the income she earns from her business to pay some of her household expenses.

Imelda is requesting this loan to buy corn, beans, cabbage, meat, tomatoes, yucca, potatoes, plantains, etc. She hopes to continue with her business and give her family a better quality of life.
