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

A loan helped to buy corn to make and sell tamales.

María Luisa's story

María is 55 years old. She never had the opportunity to go to school as where she lived did not have school at the time. Unfortunately her husband died. She had nine children with him. Three of them go to school and the other six already have their own homes.

María makes tamales to sell, work she has done for 22 years. She learned this from her mother. María makes the tamales in the morning and goes out to sell them in the afternoon. She walks about two km. selling her product.

María is requesting a loan to buy corn for her tamale production and sales. She was previously supported with two loans and has completed her repayments.

María dreams of continuing her work and continuing to enjoy good health.
