A loan of $425 helped to buy corn and firewood wholesale.


María Luisa's story

Maria Luisa has a business selling tortillas out of her house in León. She is a single mother of six children of which only one is in her charge. She started her business with a small capital from her savings. She has done this work for 32 years to support her child.

She starts making tortillas everyday from 10 am to 12 pm, and from 4 to 6 in the afternoon, she sells them our of her home.

The loan she is requesting from Ceprodel will be used to buy wholesale products for making tortillas and tamales (such as corn, firewood, lime) and make a higher profit which will allow her to realize her dreams, like to continue building a small store that has more than tortillas, to achieve a better standard of living for herself and her son who is studying at university.
