A loan of $650 helped buying a tortilla grill.


Delfina De La Luz's story

Delfina De La Luz reports that she is 52 years old and married. Her husband has lived in the United States for the past 4 years. Delfina has 5 children who are married, and one 17-year-old son who is currently studying.

She lives in Villa Lobos, Guatemala, and she has a business selling tortillas as well as products from a catalog. She has run the tortilla business for 8 years and the catalog sales for 3 years.

Delfina says that during the time that she has had her business, it has gone well for her, but she would like to grow as a businessperson, and to achieve this objective, she needs to buy a grill for her tortilla business. The tortilla grill she has is very small, and it is insufficient for the number of customers she has.

She says she has faith in God that she will be able to get ahead with the loan provided to her by FAPE and Kiva, since this is her only source of economic assistance.
