Telma Marilu's story

Telma asks for another loan to be able to stock the inventory of her tortilla-making business. The borrowed funds will serve her to purchase firewood, sweet corn, and cooking oil in bulk so to be able to improve her production of tamales.

With the financial contribution that her previous loan gave her, she managed to purchase basic supplies for the production of tamales. She has gotten an increase in her income, with which she has been able to pay her children's educational expenses and also managed to make some improvements to the infrastructure of the kitchen.
