A loan helped to buy another nixtamal mill, which will improve and speed up the service she offers her customers.


Milagro Del Carmen's story

Milagro is married and has two children, a seven-year-old boy and a five-year-old girl. She lives with her family and has relatives who live abroad.

Milagro's business is the service of milling nixtamal [a traditional corn preparation], which she started three years ago. She works in her business every day with hours from 5:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

She uses the income this business provides her with to help with the household finances.

She is seeking another loan to have an income that will allow her to expand her business. She will buy another nixtamal mill, which will improve and speed up the service she gives her customers.

This investment will help her to continue attracting new customers and generating new income. The investment carries no risk, since she has no competition in the area.

She aspires to having economic stability to provide her children with a better lifestyle.
