María Teresa's story

María Teresa C. is 41 years old and lives in the town of Colon in the department of La Libertad. Her husband is 61 years old and retired. The couple has three children (ages 17, 16, and 14). María is a cheerful person who started her tortilla business a few years ago shortly after her husband’s retirement. She was inspired to start her own business so that she could continue supporting her family financially. María has now been in business for eleven years and attributes her success to a stable clientele and high demand. She is requesting a loan to buy supplies so that she can increase her daily production of tortillas.
