Domitila's story

Domitila makes and sells tortillas. She has more than 15 years’ experience and sells Monday through Saturday; her customers place orders with her. She begins working at 5:00 am and works until 7:00 pm. Domitila receives other income by renting out two rooms, which she has been building with the help of the loans she’s received.

She will use the money from this loan to set columns for building a porch behind her house. She will buy sand, cement, gravel, metal bars, and cinder blocks. They won’t have money to pay for labor, so her husband, who works as a mason, will do the work.

She has managed to support her two children, both of whom attend school, thanks to the income she brings in from her business.
