Telma Emilia
Telma is 36 years old and has three children. She has been selling atole [a warm, corn-based beverage] for six years. She started selling it in small quantities to her neighbors, and today she goes out to sell it all over town. Before this, she was dedicated solely to domestic duties at home. Telma buys the ingredients for preparing atole a day ahead of time at stores in her town and then transports them back to her house, which is half a kilometer away.

The loan she is requesting is for buying rice, corn, sugar, cinnamon, etc. for preparing atole. It will also increase her funds for buying scrap iron and junk. This way, she will have more products available to sell. Her goal is always to work hard to support her family in every way.
