María Antonia N. C. is 39 years old and resides in the Department of Usulután with her husband, mother-in-law, and two children. She works extremely hard Monday through Sunday making tortillas, which is a traditional part of the basic diet since Salvadorans consume them up to three times a day. Her business is quite stable and serves many customers despite the presence of competition. María and her family depend heavily on the earnings from her business, so it is very important that she improve her sales.


For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral in order to buy corn in bulk, as well as firewood. María hopes to acquire the supplies for her business so that she can obtain better earnings, which will be of great benefit to her family.
