A loan helped to purchase lime powder, corn, and propane gas to maintain the tortilla production. In addition, she will invest in food products to make traditional foods.


Diana Yulisa's story

Diana lives with her family, which is made up of her, her life partner, and her child who is a minor. Diana has as a business selling tortillas and selling traditional food. She opened the business 5 years ago and learned how to do it with the help of her mother. She says that, when she began her business, it was not so simple, but with dedication, she managed to establish it and gain the trust of her customers. She works from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm.

The loan she requests will allow her to purchase lime powder, corn, and propane gas to maintain the tortilla production. In addition, she will invest in food products to make traditional foods.

She hopes that the investment will help her to improve her business and, so, to get more income to offer her family a more dignified lifestyle.

Her aspirations are to have financial solvency, pay off the loan with a good credit history, and provide her family what they need to get ahead.
