A loan of $1,050 helped to buy corn, flour, chicken, condiments, and oil.

Maria Magdalena's story

María lives with her family, her husband and her two children, ages 26 and 28. She sells tacos, tamales, bread with chicken and hamburgers. She has been in this business for seven years. She works every day from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

She is requesting a loan to buy corn, flour, chicken, condiments, and oil to make the food that she sells. This will help her strengthen her business with materials that are needed for the production.

María’s goal is to have a business with greater capacity in order for it to be more profitable. She also wants this to support her children’s education and to cover the necessary household expenses.
