A loan helped to purchase a mill for her tortilla business and to put in service to the other residents.

Niria Cándida's story

Niria went to school up to the third grade. She has a partner and three children. Her partner is a farmer.

Niria has been selling tortillas for two years, and she learned this trade from her mother when she was young. The mill is near her house, and to be able to make the tortillas she pays someone. In addition, Niria sells soft drinks.

Niria will use the loan to purchase a mill for her tortilla business. She will also put it in service to the other residents to generate an extra income. She dreams of increasing her income and of supporting her children so that they go to school.
