Emilia sells food. She gets up very early to go to the market to find the best products for her cooking, the freshest vegetables, sweet fruit and healthy meat. Then she returns home and prepares the delicious dishes that she is known for. And the reason why she has a loyal clientele. She has been selling food for 5 years now from her house. She works alone and since she has started clients come there daily as they know they will find healthy and tasty food.

At this time she is requesting a loan of 1,000 PEN and she is very grateful for the support offered her which allows her to increase her capital. With the amount requested she will buy rice, vegetables, meat and other ingredients and materials so she can continue with her food sales. She wants to increase the variety of dishes she offers.
