A loan of $300 helped to buy 8 quintals of corn to strengthen her store where she sells tortillas.


Santiaga's story

Santiaga found with her previous loan several advantages and opportunities to improve. She decided for her new loan to buy 8 quintals of corn to strengthen her store where she sells tortillas. Each quintal costs $20.00; she would also purchase other supplies that she does not have. This would help her to get all of the supplies that are needed in order to continue selling tortillas. The effect that the previous loan had was increasing the production of tortillas as well as the eatery, generating better earnings. With this she now enjoys better conditions for her family, thus improving her everyday life.
