A loan of $800 helped to buy corn to make tortillas.


Maria Catalina's story

María sells tortillas. She’s 31 years old and lives with her mother and siblings. She’s been selling for the last five years. She works every day of the week. The business has made it possible for her to cover all her needs.

At present, she requests a loan to buy corn. This loan will be of great help to her because she’ll be able to buy the basic grains for her sales at wholesale and being able to get them at wholesale means a better price. María’s objective is to work as much as possible to save up in order to form her own family.
