Rebeca's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To buy raw materials for making cómales, and to buy firewood and corn.
Rebeca works making 'cómales' (flat earthenware pans for cooking tortilla), selling firewood for cooking, and growing corn and beans. She has one son. She does not currently receive any economic support from her husband, as he is outside the country and has not yet found work. Her dream is to build a better life for her and her son. She is seeking a loan to buy raw material for making cómales and to buy firewood. At this time of year cómales are in high demand, and she already has several orders from her customers. Rebeca is grateful to God because she has work and is able to provide her son with everything he needs.
