La Canasta Group’s story

Doña Fabiola, 43, is a very hard worker who has formed a family with Gustavo; they have two children. In an effort to contribute to the household expenses, seven years ago Fabiola started delighting customers with her tacos, tortas, eggs, stuffed chilis and coconut rice water. She gets up very early every morning to get her stand ready by 7:00 a.m.

Under the shade of the ficus tree she arranges tables and chairs and on three plastic tables places a basket with tacos, tortas, eggs, stuffed chilis, snacks and coconut rice water. At 2:00 p.m. she takes everything down. She prepares the food three or four times, depending on sales.

Her earnings have allowed her family to enjoy a better quality of life, and she and her husband have invested in the children’s education and in the business. On this occasion she is applying for a loan to buy meat, tortillas, oil, beans, cheese, cream, vegetables, gas, soda and disposable goods to continue her business.
