A loan of $500 helped to buy products for her small grocery store as well as continue to sell tortillas.

Martha Del Socorro's story

Doña Martha continues to sell her delicious tortillas, the sales of which have increased. With the profits she has managed to set up a small grocery store where she sells a variety of products as she now also has the financial support of her eldest son who works as a bricklayer and brings home money every month.

The new loan will be used to buy products for the grocery store such as dry grains, rice, beans, sugar, corn, firewood, dairy products, confectionary and personal care products which are the most sought after and used by her customers.

It is greatly satisfying for her to be able to have another fixed source of income and improve on a personal level, resolving in a more stable manner commitments made. Among her plans she always plans on keeping her tortilla selling stall.
