A loan of $550 helped to buy material to make tamales..


Valeria Valentina's story

Valeria says that every time she makes tamales she has to buy the products needed to make them, and with the loan she wants to stock up with a sufficient quantity of materials such as flour, leaves, bags, etc. so that she doesn't have to buy them every week, only when necessary. Valeria has been selling tamales for around a year. Her husband is currently working in a business in the city, and they do not have any children yet. She is a native of this city and she has been renting the house where she lives for 4 years.
