A loan of $400 helped to buy corn in bulk quantities and to pay for the maintenance of her stove.

Claudia Elena's story

Claudia sells tortillas. She is a single mother who lives with her children (ages 20 and 25). Claudia’s business involves serving and selling tortillas in bulk at the city market. She learned this trade from her family and has been in business for more than 15 years.

At the moment, she is requesting a loan in order to buy corn in bulk quantities. This will allow her to obtain the best price. In addition, she will maintain the stove on which she prepares her tortillas. This will be a great help since she will be able to have a complete business.

Claudia’s aspiration is to provide a better quality of life for her family by developing her business and helping them obtain what they need the most.
