Juliana Isabel
Juliana, 61, is a single mother of three children. She’s a merchant. She makes tortillas to sell. She’s originally from León. She’s been in this business for 17 years. Her schooling is basic; she only completed second grade. She started the business thanks to a close relative who helped her and motivated her to start her own tortilla business. As the years have gone by she’s been acquiring clientele and has survived by means of this business. Her children help her and she also receives money that’s sent to her.

She asked for the loan to repair the roof, the floor and the stove that she makes the tortillas with and to buy raw materials like corn. With this investment she wants to give her business a better appearance and to have enough raw materials stored to make tortillas because the price of corn tends to increase. Her next goal is to do some home improvements, to make her business grow to pass it down as an inheritance to her youngest daughter in the future.
