A loan helped to buy a stove and corn for her business making and selling tortillas.

Eradia's story

Eradia is 59 years old. She attended school through the sixth grade. She is in a relationship, and her partner is a taxi driver. She has two daughters, one of whom depends on her and is in school.

Eradia has a stand where she sells tortillas in the neighborhood where she lives, a job she learned from her mother. She has 20 years' experience and works from Monday to Saturday, from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. She also sells bread in the afternoons. Her daughter helps her after school.

Eradia will use the loan to buy a stove and corn to make and sell tortillas. Her dream is to provide a good education to her daughter, and that she become a person who is good for society. Eradia also hopes her business becomes more profitable.
