Mujeres De La Soledad Group's story

Graciela is a 47 year-old woman. She is married with a lovely family of nine children between the ages of 10 and 30 years. She lives in a community in the village of La Soledad.

To earn her own income, she works buying and selling pigs to raise as well as selling corn tamales. She has done this work for about eight years. She sells in one of the main streets of her community.

With the desire to continue prospering with her income, now she seeks to strengthen her business selling corn tamales. Therefore she is requesting a loan that she will invest in the purchase of raw materials such as sugar, corn, and firewood.
