A loan helped to buy corn to continue in her business making and selling tamales.


Griselda De La Paz's story

Griselda attended school through high school. She is married. Her husband emigrated to another country. She has a two-year-old son.

For seven years Griselda has worked making and selling tamales, a job she learned from her older sister. She works three days a week, and sells in the park of her community.

She needs a loan to buy corn to continue in her business making and selling tamales. Her dream is to see her son grow and educate him with good values.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Laurie Hiller.


This loan is special because:

It enables vulnerable women to start and grow their own business.
