Merlin Ruth's story

Merlin is 49 years old. She is a person who presents very good recommendations from her neighbors. Merlin lives with her two young children and works hard to provide them the best. She produces tortillas at her home where she attends to all of her customers. In addition, she sells eggs and corn.

Merlin wants to begin growing her business so that she can generate more income. Therefore, she is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral so that she can buy eggs as well as corn in bulk, firewood, and lime for making a large quantity of tortillas. Her greatest wish is to improve her earnings so that she and her family can live better.
