Martha es una mujer de 35 años de edad, es soltera, muy trabajadora y emprendedora y es precisamente por eso que hace dos años se decidió a iniciar un negocio de elaboración de tortillas, en busca de poder incrementar sus ingresos y alcanzar un mejor nivel de vida para ella y su familia.


Las tortillas son parte integral de la dieta del mexicano y en su elaboración es muy importante poder contar con materia prima de calidad, ya que esto determina la aceptación de las mismas por parte de los clientes. En el caso de Martha, ella necesita comprar la harina en grandes cantidades, para poder alcanzar buenos precios en beneficio de mejores utilidades.


Debido a lo anterior Martha solicita un préstamo por $250 USD para comprar su principal insumo que es la maseca (Harina de maíz) y tener asegurado el abasto de la misma, el plazo que solicita para pagar es de 3-6 meses.
