Tania Mercedes's story

Tania is a young, active entrepreneur who is 24 years old. For three years, she worked as a server in different fast food restaurants where she gained experience and an understanding of managing this type of business. One year ago, she completed a food handling course in order to start a production project in her godmother's company. She wants to start a fast food business and take advantage of the open space in her home. This motivates her to apply for a loan to buy a food cart, a deep-fryer, an industrial stove, a refrigerator and wholesale provisions such as breads, cold meats, condiments and sodas. This way she can launch her business idea. She hopes to generate a good income because she has the advantage of being located near the main zone of the city which is a sector with lots of movement. Tania has a spirit of excellence and a vision for her business. She dreams of having her own establishment where she could have her restaurant and sell typical dishes such as fast food. This will improve the profitability of her business and afford her family a better quality of life.
