Iris Margorth
Iris is 31 years old, is married and has a 2 year old son. For a living she sells and makes hand made tortillas in her home with the help of her mother. They already have more than 3 years in this trade. They sell the tortillas Monday through Saturday in their home from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM. It's also worth mentioning that she also plants corn and beans (the trade of her father) but he helps them. It is a family trade and they have more than 15 years of doing it. Today she has the furnishings and equipment necessary to do these activities.

To do the work of making and selling the tortillas, she needs to buy (corn, ground pork, cheese, loroco, oil, and vegetables like cabbage, carrots, etc.) these products she purchases in the municipal market that located 2 kilometers from her house. She purchases these products one day a week since they are perishable and do not keep in refrigeration for long.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo (Field Foundation) is to buy 50 lbs of corn, 6 lbs of ground pork, 6 pounds of special cheese, 3 pounds of loroco, 1 gas iron, vegetables like cabbage, carrots, etc.

The advantage of Iris, is that in the place where she lives it is very big and populated and there is a lot of demand for food in the evening. For this reason she had the idea of selling hand made tortillas from her home.

Due to purchase the products for the creation of handmade tortillas so that the sales will be successful, she will be able to obtain increased income. With this income she will be able to give a better life to her young son and stability to her family.

As a product of the good investments of credit, she has future plans to construct a small house. Today they live with her parents and she want to be independent, by having her own home.
