Clementina Del Carmen's story

Clementina, 58 years old, is a woman who has been able to provide an example to her children, being responsible, generous, and hard-working. She used to work doing house cleaning, but the pandemic has left her without a job. For this, with her desire to get ahead, she has undertaken making quimbolitos, envueltos and humitas
[all corn-based dishes, steamed in leaves], which she goes out to sell at her neighbors' houses.

Clementina wants to rent a retail space where she can sell her delicious quimbolitos and humitas. She asks for a loan to purchase several varieties of corn, sugar, quesillo, flour, and achira leaves. In this way, she will be able to produce more, allowing her to improve her income and pay for the household necessities.
