Ada Isabel
Ada lives in the city of Managua, and is a single mother with five children. She operates a small business making and selling tortillas, and she started the business with only two pounds of corn. As she began making more and more tortillas, her neighbors kept demanding more, too. She then realized that no flour grinding services existed in her neighborhood, and so she decided to save up money and buy a flour mill. This machine and investment have expanded the scope of services she offers to her customers.

Ada's desires to provide for her family and get ahead have lead her to open her own small business, and her older children help her run the tortilla operation. Ada is requesting this loan in hopes of broadening the scope of her business. She plans to use the support from this loan to purchase meat and corn for sale by the pound. She hopes this investment will help her improve her family’s quality of life, as well as to make improvements to her home
