A loan helped to buy ingredients for snacks.

Dúo Alotenango 2 Group's story

Lina keeps being the leader of the duo. She works selling toasted snacks, dobladas (stuffed tortillas), bread, atole (cornflour drink), nachos and more, and also gifts.
This cycle she wants to invest in her snacks by buying products at wholesale prices and some utensils to make wreaths which she sells around November, in order to have more income. With her previous loan, she was able to sell frozen items, ice cream, gelatin and more.
The other member of the group works selling American clothes and would also like to invest in making wreaths this season. They are grateful for the support they have received which gives them the opportunity to improve their quality of life.
