Maria Hortencia's story

Maria Hortencia is 55 years old, and she lives in Villanueva with her lifetime partner as all of their 8 children live on their own. She is a woman with many goals and a willingness to improve herself. Marian engages in selling tortillas and tamales in a shop she has set in her house. It is well attended by the locals, as she stands out for being a good seller and for being kind to her customers. For this reason she is requesting a loan she will use to buy maize, comales (clay dishes used to prepare tortillas), and bags among other products. Maria has high hopes this loan will help her improving the economy of her family in order to reach a better quality of life.
