Noemí has been making and selling tortillas for 22 years, although now she only makes and sells tamales because her doctor does not allow her to cook tortillas over fire. She learned her trade from her mother who taught both her and her sister. She buys supplies at the market which is 1.5 kilometers from her house.
The loan she is requesting through Fundación Campo is to pay off two plots of land she purchased. The loan will mean the person selling the land will have to make it legal before possibly leaving the country, which would make things difficult for her.
Her goal is to set up a store to earn more income and support her son so he can study engineering at the university. She used to run her own store but had to close it because of crime.

About Housing Loans
Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
