A loan helped to buy corn, firewood, and lime to make the artisan production of tortillas.

Francisca's story

Francisca has decided to request another loan because she needs working capital to reopen her artisan tortilla business, given that due to the crisis caused by the COVID 19 pandemic she had to stop operating. She will buy corn, firewood, and lime. These ingredients are essential to make the artisanal production of tortillas.
The result of the previous investment was positive, since at the time the business remained strong and operating. This changed months later, since she was infected with the COVID 19 virus, but thank God she has recovered her health. Faced with this situation, she was forced to close her business. Today, with the loan she is requesting, she has the aspiration of being able to re-establish her economic activity. Francisca's family group has not changed, but her economic conditions have deteriorated.
