Nehemias Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase ingredients for "tamales" and "paches".
Nehemias Group's story
Marta Barrera lives with her husband, daughters, and grandchildren. She has a tortilla shop where she sells “tamales”, “paches” [type of tamale made with potatoes]. She is requesting a loan to continue growing her sales of “tamales” and “paches” as sales decreased due to the pandemic. She works in her business alone, which pays for her household expenses. Now, she sells “tamales” door-to-door on Saturdays and “paches” on Thursdays. She says that she has managed to keep her business open. Her goals are to continue working and supporting her home. She dreams of a better future and better income.
