Maritza Del Socorro
Maritza is 56 years old, from Managua, married, and has 2 children that are 17 and 33 years old. As a merchant she makes a living by selling tortillas. She began with 25 pounds of dough, making tortillas in her house for the last three years. Then she saw that the business was very profitable as it generated a lot of income. She therefore decided to buy machines to make her tortillas. In her business she counts on the support of her son and a person that helps her to distribute her tortillas in different neighborhoods of Managua, and she pays them for their labor.

She is asking for the loan to buy all the raw materials she needs for making her tortillas like corn, lime, firewood, bags, oil, trays, etc. She estimates that this loan will help her a lot because she will be able to increase her sales by buying products that she doesn't yet stock. Her future plans are to increase the volume of her production, making and selling additional products like cheese and curds. Her immediate goal is to expand her business.
