A loan of $600 helped to buy tomatoes, onions, corn, oil, seasonings, and firewood.


Blanca Lidia's story

Blanca has decided to request another loan because she wants to expand her sales in her business. She will buy products such as tomatoes, onions, corn, oil, seasonings, and a portion of firewood to make tortillas and, in the afternoon, meat pies and snacks. This will help her have the necessary materials to make the products. For the firewood, buying it in cash will help her get a better price. She says the previous loan had a positive effect because she made the necessary purchase to improve her customer service selling tortillas. This has been very useful for increasing her sales. With this loan she wants to offer another line to her customers.
