Xiomara Yamileth's story

Xiomara is 40 years old and lives with her husband and two daughters. Xiomara is entirely dedicated to her business, which is producing and selling tortillas and pisque tamales. She has been in this business for two years now; her customers are her neighbors in the town where she lives, where she is known for being a very honest and responsible woman who works hard to get her daughters ahead in life.

She will use the loan to buy ingredients to make tortillas and tamales.

She wants to increase her sales in order to earn more and, thus, be able to give her daughters a good education and a better quality of life.
