View original language description ↓
In the city of Chinandega, Ms. Isidra Gonzáles has been making and selling tortillas for a living for 10 years.


She is a single-mother with one son under her care. Despite the fact that the tortilla business is her sole source of income, she has managed to give her son everything that is necessary for him to grow up properly. Now, however, she needs to invest in purchasing the ingredients needed to make her tortillas. For this reason, she is seeking Ceprodel’s support so that she can obtain a loan, thus allowing her to continue to raise her son and cover the household expenses.
