A loan of $375 helped to buy raw materials to make tortillas.


Balvina's story

Balvina is a single mother. She’s an enterprising, hard working and honest woman. Her children are still going to elementary school but her plan for the future is that they become professionals. She has had her own business selling tortillas for some time now. She started it with funds of her own. Her short term plan is to increase sales to generate profits.

She requires the loan to buy raw materials like: corn, firewood, lime powder and charcoal among other things to make tortillas. She is grateful to the financial organization for the great support of her business’ development and to the improvement of her family’s standard of living.
