Dolores
Dolores, age 36, has an elementary school education. She is married to Trinidad, who works in the fields. They have two children, but only one child is economically dependent upon them. She and her family live in a community in a sugarcane zone.

She tells us that she has been helping her husband with the household expenses for two years. That is why she decided to sell handmade tortillas. By doing this she gives her son and her family a better quality of life.

She starts making the tortillas very early every day. She gets up at 4:30 in the morning in order to go to the mill. After that she begins making her tortillas. She offers her tortillas to her customers or neighbors one day ahead of time. The next day, after she finishes making the tortillas, she leaves to deliver them. She also says that because people know that she sells, they go to her house to buy.

Dolores needs this loan to buy corn, lime water, and firewood to make her tortillas. She hopes that this loan will help her improve her business in order to get ahead day to day. She is very grateful to the Fundación for the help that was given to her.
