Julia Del Socorro's story

Julia’s an enterprising woman who is dedicated to her work which is making tortillas. She’s been in this line of work for many years. Her business is home-based. She rises daily at 4am to start her production. She has many customers who come by at 6am to buy. This type of food is consumed three times a day in our country. Julia’s the mother of five children who are adults now and sometimes help her deliver the tortillas. She will use the loan to buy raw materials to make tortillas because she currently has pending orders that are large and she does not have enough inventory on hand to meet demand. In her free time Julia goes to church.
