Petrona's story

Petrona sells tortillas and basic grains. She is a very determined person because this isn’t the first time she’s negotiated a loan with the Fundación that has been very useful for her business.

She’s been in business for over 20 years; she knows her customers and what they want very well. She started while still very young and didn’t have much income for her home. In time, she’s managed to obtain her own business.

She will use the requested loan to buy tortillas, basic grains and for her scratch off lottery ticket sales. She wants to increase her working capital which is basic to continue growing in business.
