Fany Noem's story

Fany has two children, a girl and a boy, 17 and 11 years old, respectively. Both children are her dependents. She lives with her children and her sister who is 39 years old. She has two brothers who live abroad.

Fany sells tortillas; a business born 13 years ago. Her product is made using traditional methods. Currently she tends to the business by herself, working from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The loan she is requesting will be used to purchase 3 quintals (138 kgs) of corn and firewood. These materials will help her improve and increase her inventory to sell tortillas.

She hopes this investment will help her to continue working daily in her business since this is the main source of income for her family.

Her vision for her business is to purchase a kitchen with a grill to make tortillas. She will continue working and obtaining more income, which she will use to help her family get ahead.
