A loan of $1,000 helps to purchase corn to prepare and sell tortillas.


Manuel Rafael's story

Manuel, 82, is a widower with seven children. One of his daughters lives with him but is no longer dependent on his income.

Manuel has a business making and selling tortillas. It is located near his home and is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. He has an employee who is in charge of making the product.

Manuel needs a loan to purchase corn to prepare and sell tortillas.

Manuel dreams of building up his business and increasing his profits.

This loan is special because:

It helps people older than 60 who still have the capacity to work but no financing.
