Friends, family, good morning!

Many of you know my situation at the moment in Costa Rica. I am Luz Angela Cardona Blandon, I'm a single mother of two children, 16 and 7 years old, whom I love and are my life. I am an 50 years old entrepreneur.

My sewing workshop stopped due to the pandemic

I have a small sewing workshop where I produced sheets and embroidery for motels and small hotels. Due to the situation in the world we are living in, I have no job, no order, since the hotel sector is paralyzed.

These are works I made with my son Steven. We did embroidery and sheets for motels as our family business, but the global pandemic finished it all.

Being Colombian is our strength

I have to put together and reinvent myself. I need new jobs that I can do from home and one of them is food services, something I like and I did it several times in Colombia 20 years ago and here in Costa Rica about 7 years ago.

I like to cook, prepare homemade meals with excellent flavors and share my good work with people, delivering fast and express service: delicious filled arepas for breakfast coffee and delicious healthy lunches.

Thank God we get excellent acceptance from customers. Our meals, the stuffed arepas, empanadas, the patacones have all been a success. Every day more and more people come to us, said that they want to try the exquisite Colombian homemade flavor of which we stand out.

We need more kitchen equipments to improve our food service

I'm starting with what little I have, with my especial seasonings.

In term of food preparation, it has been difficult since we do not have the necessary tools and utensils and chords for this job, but we have achieved it with all the basic materials that we have at home in our kitchen without fainting and without making people look bad and complying with our commitment with a lot of effort and love.

Therefore we need the help of all the people who want to support us to get ahead with this new project, we need to buy a griddle for grilling arepas, an oven, large pots, a gas cylinder, a freezer or a large refrigerator, an electric template, urn to keep food warm, corn grinding machine and especially meats and vegetables that are essential for our delicious dishes.

This has an approximate cost of 5 to 7 thousand dollars. I know with effort and love we will get ahead and I will be able to take my children out of their studies since Steven this year is graduating from college and going to the University to study Anthropology and my son David is in elementary school.

Please support our Colombian Food Services

I have to raise my children and the oldest one graduates this year and my little one is starting his 2nd year of school. So I ask everyone for help from 5 USD onward and to help me share this information since the situation for the tourism-hotel sector is not going to reopen soon.

I rely especially for the hands of God to open the doors for me. God is the one who opens doors for us and showers blessings on each of us. Thanks to everyone for your support.
