Julia Estefania's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy corn, lime and sanitary bags in order to stock up her tortilla sales business.


Julia Estefania's story

Julia has a partner and a daughter who is still a child. She lives with her partner and daughter.

About 5 years ago Julia opened her business selling tortillas. She learned the trade from her mother-in-law. Its advantage is that it already has an established clientele.

She is requesting a loan to buy corn, lime and sanitary bags in order to stock up her tortilla business. She hopes that the investment will give her the opportunity to acquire corn at wholesale and at a low price, so she can continue working.

Her aspirations are to grow her business, have better family life conditions and provide an education to her daughter.
