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


A loan helped to buy corn, beans, cooking oil, chicken, etc. to make tamales, as well as utensils to streamline the processes in her business.


Reina Elizabeth's story

Reina is getting another loan because she is satisfied with the results of the previous investment, and also because she wants to invest again in her business selling tamales and typical snacks.

The borrowed funds will be used to buy corn, beans, cooking oil, chicken, etc. to prepare tamales, and she will also buy utensils to streamline the processes in her business.

The previous loan helped her keep her business active, which has been very helpful in increasing her household income.

Her business is currently diversifying since she sells tamales with chicken meat, pisques [local delicacy] and sweet corn, and she is now also selling nuegados [sweet fried dumplings].
