A loan of $600 helped to buy corn, meat, vegetables, beans, firewood, and other supplies for making tamales.


Clara Luz's story

Clara is a responsible, cheerful, and hardworking woman who tries to have a positive attitude despite the obstacles she has faced. She makes different types of tamales filled with meat, black beans, or vegetables. Clara has been preparing food for many years and has several established customers. She sells her products from her home, as a street vendor, and also by taking orders. There have been many times when she has had to refuse orders because she is lacking in supplies.


Clara is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral in order to buy corn, meat, vegetables, beans, firewood, and other supplies so that she can have the capacity to accept more orders for tamales. By taking advantage of this opportunity, she will be able to generate additional income.
