Bessy Aracely's story

Bessy, 25, lives in the city of San Marcos de Colon with her husband and son. She’s very tenacious and dedicated to her business which is making and selling tortillas, an activity she’s been in for seven years. Her customers are people from the community and others who place large orders for parties or get-togethers. She will use the loan to buy supplies to make larger amounts of tortillas; she currently has more pending orders and can’t quite fill them all. Bessy works very hard to provide a better quality of life for her son.
