A loan of $400 helped to purchase corn, condiments, and cooking oil to make tamales.


Marvin Yanira's story

Marvin sells tamales and she lives with her husband. They do not have children. She has been making tamales daily for the past 5 years and she set outs to sell in the region. Some clients come to her house to buy. At this time Marvin wants to purchase ingredients to have in stock and to increase production. She requests a loan for this reason. She will invest in corn, condiments, and cooking oil to add to her inventory. Her goal is to keep working with loans in an orderly fashion and to make sound investments in order to increase her profits.
