Manuela opened “By Maria Pickles y Salsas” in 2012, selling only one product: sweet cucumbers made using her brother’s recipe. They cooked at home at the very beginning as they tried to get the funding needed to grow their business. Accion’s partner RedCapital gave her the support she needs to keep the business in order and expand.

With the support of MetLife Foundation, we worked with RedCapital to help entrepreneurs like Manuela to manage their day-to-day expenses so they can make long-term decisions and prepare for unstable times. Learn more.
