Maria Francisca is from Mexico. She needs a loan of $1,275 to purchase chickens, soda, chili, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, tortilla, dough, meat, salt, potatoes, and cooking oil.
Maria Francisca, also called Pancha to people close to her, lives in the community of Rancho Grande, which is about two hours from Vicente Camalote in the state of Oaxaca. Pancha is 46 years old and married to Roberto Delgado Palmeros, They have two children, a 25 year old daughter who is married, and a 23 year old son who still lives with them.
Pancha started her business of selling chickens and Mexican food about five years ago. Every day she takes a table out to her front patio and sells her food and chickens. She plans to use her loan to help purchase more chickens, sodas, chilies, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, tortillas, dough, meat, salt, potatoes, and cooking oil. These ingredients will help her prepare more of her delicious Mexican food to sell.
She began her business to help her husband with their household expenses. Pancha wants her business to become more profitable and prosper in the future. She is grateful to her World Vision for the opportunity to help her business grow.
