Solidario Mujeres Triunfantes Group's story

Communal bank "Solidario Mujeres Triunfantes"

Raimunda is married, and for 15 years has been selling tortillas for a living. She has a son who is single and still lives with her. She is requesting this loan to buy firewood and corn so she can make tortillas. Now is the time of year when firewood is at is best price and she will be able to dry it before the winter season so she does not have to worry about it then. Corn is also being sold at a good price now and will later increase, even though tortilla prices will remain the same. She wants to have sufficient merchandise on hand for the future. She also wants to continue fattening the pigs she has at home, and buy more for the future. But she does not have sufficient capital and is requesting a loan through FAPE to buy what she needs.
