A loan of $450 helped to buy corn, a tortilla hotplate, firewood, milk, salt and other products.


Irma's story

Irma has been working with Fundación Leon 2000 for a long time and this is not the first time that she has requested a loan. Her business is selling tortillas and cuajadas (a compact, cheese-like product). Most of her customers are friends, neighbors and family members. They know very well how hard she constantly works. Irma is requesting this loan to buy corn, a tortilla hotplate, firewood, milk, salt and other products. Irma has managed to consistently improve her business through the loans that she takes out.
