A loan helped to buy a stove and corn, to prepare and sell tortillas.


Ana Francisca's story

Ana only completed first grade studies, is single and lives with her two children. For the past 12 years, she has worked selling tortillas, which she learned from her mother.

She runs the business out of her house and works from 5 am to 3 pm, with the help of her daughter. Prior to this, she used to sell produce.

Ana will use this loan to buy a stove and corn, to make and sell tortillas. This will result in a positive impact in her life, as she will be able to work more efficiently.

Her dream is to be able to grow her business so that she can generate more income.
