María Juana's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped make more purchases and buy firewood to continue selling tortillas.

María Juana's story

Maria studied until the 6th grade in school since her parents could not continue to help her after that point. She has never been married but she took care of her parents until they passed away. Now she takes care of her older sister.

Since she doesn't have anyone who supports her economically, she decided to sell tortillas form her home and she does so from 5:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. She also does dressmaking work in the afternoon.

She will use the loan to make more purchases and buy fire wood to continue selling tortillas.

Maria's dream is to have the strength that she needs to work and help her sister the best that she can. She also hopes to receive the support of a loan to continue with her business.
