Maria Santiago's story

I have worked in the fabrication and sales of corn tortillas for five years. My customers are my neighbors who like to eat their meals with warm tortillas. My business has grown and my earnings have been sufficient to help pay for my childrens\' education and other family expenses. My idea is to start selling to other nearby communities, but I need to investment capital to hire others to help me in the production and distributing of the tortillas. Now, in the holiday season, people buy large quantities of tortillas and because of this I need to invest more capital.

Tengo cinco años de dedicarme a la elaboracion y venta de tortillas de maiz, mis vecinos son clientes ya que ellos prefieren comer sus alimentos con tortillas calientes. Mi negocio ha crecido y mis gancias han sido de bastante ayuda para pagar los estudios de mis hijos y los gastos de la familia. Mi idea es abarcar con ventas otras colonias cercanas a la mia, pero necesito capital para contratar otras personas que me ayuden a elaborar y entregar tortillas. Ahora en epoca navideña las personas compran tortillas en grandes cantidades es por eso que necesito invertir mas capital.
