A loan of $500 helped to buy corn, lime, and propane gas.


Blanca Mirian's story

Blanca Mirian C. M. is 57 years old and lives in Lourdes Colón, in the La Libertad zone. She lives with her husband, who is retired and helps her with the business. The business is located in their home, where people go to buy their favorite tortillas (as Blanca has 8 years of experience). She is also in charge of delivering tortillas to the workers at a factory that is located close to her home, and her husband helps her by carrying the tortillas to the factory. Blanca is asking for a loan to obtain the money needed to buy greater quantities of corn, lime, and propane gas for making tortillas. This would be of great benefit to her since it would let her make a greater quantity of her product and be able to fill more orders. Blanca is a very hard-working person who is full of hope because she will be able to attend to more customers and accept more orders, which will result in higher earnings for herself and for her husband.
