A loan of $500 helped to buy corncobs, firewood, oil and gas.


Maria Aracely's story

María has requested a new loan to invest more in her business. She plans to buy corncobs to make tamales, as well as oil, firewood and gas, which are required to make this product.

Her prior loan had a positive impact, as she invested it in her tamal business and bought chickens. This increased her income and gave her the resources needed to keep working. Her financial situation has also improved, and she now lives with her family in a more solvent manner.
