MARIANA is 57 years old and has nine children. Her husband used to work in the countryside, but he suffered an embolism and is now unable to work. Ever since then Mariana has taken over as head of household by making handmade tortillas and selling them among the people of her community as tortillas are the core of any meal. She belongs to a group called San Dionisio 7 and the other members of the group are: Marta Gómez Velasco (convenience store owner), Guadalupe Gómez Velasco (convenience store owner), Blanca Martínez Jiménez (tortilla maker) and Ms. Lidia Gómez Velasco (convenience store owner). With the loan, three of them will invest in the purchase of merchandise in order to better supply their stores, the other two women will purchase corn, firewood and other instruments in order to make their tortillas.
