Isabel is from Mexico. She has 3 children. She needs a loan of $175 to buy hot peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic, corn masa, tortillas, meat, oil, cheese, sour cream, cabbage, gas and plastic dishes.
Isabel is a 38 year old woman with a high school education. She is married to Martiniano, who works as a farmer. They have 3 children: Guadalupe who is 16, Martin who is 15, both in junior high, and Armando Alejandro who is 3 years old. They live in Aserradero, just a few minutes away from the Margarita sugar mill, in the state of Oaxaca. A year ago, Isabel decided to start selling Mexican snacks to earn some extra money. She sells her snacks on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. On sale-days, she wakes up very early and begins cooking. During the afternoon, she sets up a table in front of her door from which she offers her delicious Mexican Snacks to customers.
With the requested loan, Isabel will buy hot peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic, corn mass, tortillas, meat, oil, cheese, sour cream, cabbage, gas and plastic dishes. She began her business to improve her family's quality of life and to provide her children with a better education. She will use this investment to improve her business so that she can one day provide her children with a college education.
