Mercedes's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy corn and firewood in bulk quantities for making tortillas.

Mercedes's story

Mercedes is married and has two children. She does not have any dependents or any relatives who live abroad. Mercedes has a business of selling tortillas. She learned this trade when she was a girl from her mother. On the days when she works, she begins early by leaving her house in order to have corn processed at the mill. At her vending stall, she attends to her customers from 7:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.

The loan she is requesting will give her available funds to buy corn and firewood in bulk quantities since these are supplies commonly used for tortilla production. She will also be able to prepare tortillas during the winter season when corn prices increase. Mercedes hopes to restock her business inventory so that she can continue working and generating income to sustain her family.

Her aspirations are to have financial stability and provide a better way of life for her family.
