Yarleny Concepcion
Mrs. Yarleny Concepcion G. makes and sells tortillas, which she has done for several years. She is a hard-working person with a strong desire to overcome challenges.

Right now, she is selling few tortillas, and doesn't have money to buy raw materials to be able to increase her production. She is requesting a loan to buy more firewood, bags of corn flour, lime, and water. Yarleny can not meet all the needs of her customers. She sells her product in grocery stores, small markets, or by special order.

She gets up at 4 in the morning every day to start making tortillas. She makes them twice a day. She told us that her dream is to buy a machine to make tortillas, so that she can sell more.
