A loan helped to buy corn on the cob to make and sell tamales.


Suyapa Saraí's story

Suyapa attended school through the fourth grade. She is in a relationship, and her partner is a mason.

For eight months Suyapa has worked making and selling tamales, a job she learned from her sister. She also has a small store selling staple goods.

She needs a loan to buy corn on the cob to make and sell tamales. Suyapa's dream is that her daughter grow up healthy. She also wants to always have success in her businesses.
