A loan of $1,025 helped to buy spare parts for her corn grinding machine.


Maria's story

Maria Elena E. lives in Guaitil de Guanacaste. She is well known for the delicious tortillas that she makes by hand.

Maria started out with a small business selling her tortillas. However, demand increased a lot and she had to buy an industrial mill. Now she needs a loan for 500,000 colones to buy spare parts for her industrial mill.

Maria would like to improve and grow her business. This will improve her own quality of life and that of her family.
