A loan of $700 helped to buy corn flour and to repair her roof.


Claudia Marisol's story

Claudia Marisol, 31, is married and has three children who are 15, 10 and 8 years old; all three attend school. She lives in the Las Torres neighborhood in Choloma, Cortes. Her husband is employed at an assembly plant.

Claudia started her own business with help from her sister a year and a half ago. She is a responsible, very hardworking person. She makes corn tortillas to sell from 6am until 10am and then from 1pm until 6pm every day. The business’ clientele has grown.

To stay in business she’s asked for three loans that she’s invested in the purchase of raw materials like corn flour to make tortillas. With this current loan, she will use part of it to repair her roof. Her goal is that her children complete their schooling and to improve her house.
