Juana has a tortilla shop in her house where she prepares tortillas at noon and in the evening. This product is a staple of the Salvadoran diet and is consumed every day, up to three times a day, since it is usually accompanied with each meal. This is a great benefit to Juana since she already has customers who consume much of what she makes.
She is requesting a loan so that she will have the funds needed to purchase corn in bulk. This will allow her to buy at lower prices, which will be a great help since she will be able to generate better earnings.
