A loan of $575 helped to buy firewood, corn flour, lime, and water.


Gloria's story

Señora Gloria Z. T. is 42 and lives in La Era in the city of Tegucigalpa and makes a living by making and selling corn tortillas. She sells them in her home Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. She has a lot of clients who are her neighbors and also fills large orders. She will use the loan to buy firewood, lime, corn flour, and water, since her customers are asking for more tortillas, and her current production does not cover all of the orders. She needs the profits to cover her living expenses.
