A loan of $500 helped to purchase corn and firewood for the sale of tortillas.


Juana Francisca's story

Juana lives with her husband and her daughter. She works selling tortillas, a business she started six years ago on her own. Her customers are neighbors and friends who travel in the area. Up until now, she has not had difficulties with the business.

She is asking for this loan to purchase corn and firewood for the sale of tortillas. This investment will help her strengthen her business and earn a good profit, which will support her family.

Her goal is to have everything necessary for the business and help her family by covering the necessities with her income.
