A loan of $800 helped to purchase corn in bulk and firewood for making tortillas.

Juana's story

Juana lives with her life partner. She makes a living selling tortillas, which she has done for fifteen years. She has spent much time working in this business and it has given her very good experience. Juana is proud that her business has been successful. Her tortilla shop is located in her home and is well known in the area, since the tortillas she sells are the freshest and most delicious. Juana has many customers who like to buy her tortillas because of their quality and affordable price, and because her service is the fastest. She also raises cattle, which helps her cover the household expenses. Juana is very dedicated to her work, and is always on the lookout for new opportunities that could help her achieve greater prosperity in the future. The demand for Juana’s tortillas has recently increased, and so she wants to increase her production. She needs capital to purchase supplies for making tortillas, and that is why she is asking for a loan from Apoyo Integral. The loan will allow her to buy corn in bulk, firewood, and other supplies. Juana has good payment references and is very responsible. She is confident that she can pay off her loan on time while providing her family with a full life.
