Guadalupe Hortencia is from Mexico. She has 5 children. She needs a loan of $325 to buy ingredients for snacks such as tomatoes, chilis, onions, cheese, beans, and cooking oil .
Guadalupe lives in the community of Vicente with her husband, Genaro, and their five children. Vicente's outstanding feature is that it is surrounded by sugar cane plantations and because it hosts the sugar mill named "Ingenio la Margarita," one of the most important sugar producers in the state of Oaxaca. The mill is a great source of jobs for people in the area.
For the past 16 years, Guadalupe has been selling typical Mexican snacks. She prepares pasties, tacos, "tostadas" (fried tortillas with different toppings), "platanos fritos" (fried bananas), and "gorditas" (thick tortillas with different fillings). With her income, she wants to help her husband provide for their family and improve their living conditions. She usually sells her snacks every afternoon right outside her house. Sometimes she also prepares other Mexican dishes.
With a loan, she will be able to buy more ingredients to continue working and getting her income. She wants to purchase tomatoes, tortillas, chili, onions, garlic, potatoes, bananas, beans, cheese, sour cream, cabbage, cooking oil, etc.
As she loves the type of activity she carries out, she wants to keep investing the profits on the same business. Guadalupe wants to let Vision Fund know how pleased she is for the support she is receiving.
