Anonymous's story

The young man's face has been pixelated because he's 21 and lives in a high-risk zone.

He has had a corn mill in his home for three years. He has a lot of customers, especially women who make tortillas, because they go to him to grind their maize. He also has a small store. With what he earns from his sales he's able to cover some of his household expenses. The young man lives in his own home with his family.

He's requesting a loan to buy what he needs for the mill, including belts, discs, and blades. That way he'll earn a better income.
