but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a grinder and inputs to make the arepas.

Maria Elena's story

Elena is 54 years old and lives in the municipality of Medellin. She has a son that she loves very much and for whom she has been working very hard since he was born. She makes arepas, (tortillas made with corn) one of the most traditional products in Colombia, and they have sold very well.

She dreams of buying a house for her family, which is something that she has always wanted, so they can live better. She expects she can increase her sales, her clients and the profits so her business can be sustainable.

She’s asking for a loan so she can buy a grinder and inputs to make the arepas.
