Alejandra's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy corn and firewood at wholesale and buy a stove with a griddle, giving her the basic materials and new equipment to sell tortillas.

Alejandra's story

Alejandra is a single mother. She lives with her six-year-old daughter and her mother. She is the fundamental pillar of her family. Her father lives abroad and she receives financial help from him, but it is not enough to cover the household expenses.

About six months ago, Alejandra opened her own business selling tortillas. She learned the occupation from her mother who used to do it, and who also passed the business on to her.

She works from Monday through Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Her mother occasionally helps her to make tortillas.

She is requesting a loan to boost her business's inventory. She will use the working capital to buy corn and firewood at wholesale, as well as a stove with a griddle. With this she'll have the basic materials and new equipment to make tortillas.

The investment will help her generate family income. The risk is that Alejandra will develop health problems and have to stop working because of it.

Her dream is to open another tortilla selling business and have the financial stability to cover the family expenses.
