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


A loan helped to buy 400 pounds of corn and to buy firewood and lime, to make tortillas. She wants to buy a traditional comal.


Nidia Arely's story

Arely, 23, is a single mother of a five-year-old boy. She grew up alongside her parents working in agriculture and helping her mother in the household chores. She only went to school until seventh grade. She could not go on due to financial problems and lack of support. Now she lives with her paternal grandparents and her son.

Arely has been selling tortillas for six years. She makes them from corn in the community and sells them in her home town, where she delivers tortillas to her regular customers every day. She gets up early and starts making tortillas at 5:30 a.m. and sells them Monday through Sunday.

Arely needs this loan to buy four hundred pounds of corn, and to buy firewood and lime, to make tortillas. She wants to buy a traditional comal to make tortillas, because the one she has is quite worn out now.

Arely's dream is to buy an industrial griddle to make more tortillas and sell more in the community, because the demand is high.
