A loan of $500 helped purchase corn in bulk.


Rosa Del Carmen's story

Rosa del Carmen T. J. is 30 years old and a resident of the Department of Ahuachapán. She lives with her husband, who is a construction worker, and their two dependent children who are studying in a basic education program at the local school. Rosa started selling tortillas two years out of family necessity. She decided that she should help her husband with covering their household expenses.

Rosa makes and sells tortillas at noon and in the evenings. She has the advantage of being the only tortilla stand in her neighborhood. Rosa has been able to build a very stable business that generates good revenues. For this reason, she is requesting a loan so that she can buy corn in bulk so that she can serve more customers and generate a better income.
