It is the only business she has to support her daughter. She obtained her experience by working for another person. Later, she became independent, and she started up her own business. Up until now she continues to work; she has no other economic activities, as she must tend to her business, which is a distance of 150 meters from her home. She walks there every day, and her daughter helps her with the business.

Deysi is requesting a loan to buy corn from her brother, so that she can make tortillas. She will also use part of the funds to pay off a debt that she has. This loan will improve her business, because she will have enough corn to ensure that she has tortillas to sell, and so she will be able to meet the demands of her customers.
