Las Princesas Group's story

Olga Yolanda is a mother, wife and the leader of the Las Princesas group. She has earned a living for the last few years from her tortilla stand and by selling snacks and tamales at the weekends.

Her goal is to win back as quickly as possible the customers she lost due to the pandemic as it affected sales badly.

Olga Yolanda is grateful that her business has already started to make money again with sales of tamales, tortillas, and snacks. Her tortillas are available at two of the day’s main mealtimes and she sells her snacks in the afternoon.

Olga Yolanda is therefore applying for a loan to buy corn, firewood, and vegetables as her finances are not sufficient. Although her business was severely affected by the pandemic, she is already seeing an increase in sales.
