A loan of $600 helped to buy wholesale firewood, leaves, chicken, oil, corn, and bags.


Juana Maria's story

Juana makes a living selling tamales. She is a woman of her home, and lives with her sister and a daughter. She has spent more than 20 years making a living in this business and she learned it on her own initiative. Today it helps her to be able to have an income and cover the necessities of her home. She is asking for the loan in order to buy wholesale firewood, leaves, chicken, oil, corn, bags, and some plastic sheets for the roof of her house. This loan will be used to invest in the ingredients that she uses to make the tamales. In this way it will improve her inventory so that she has on hand everything she needs to generate sales. Among Juana's goals is to finish the construction of her home, grow her business, and have her clients remain faithful so that she can continue offering them products of quality.
