A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a machine to make corn dough.

Antonía's story

Antonia, 42, is married and lives in Solalá. Antonia, her husband, and her four children, three sons and one daughter, study and work together, contributing to the household economy and improving the whole family's quality of life. She is a hard-working woman and really wants to move forward economically with her family. Currently, she wants to start a new business in her home, since she has enough space to have a grocery store and have a machine to make corn dough available to her customers. This will benefit many families near her home. This is why she sees the need to invest in opening this business, which is why she is applying for a loan of 8,000.00 GTC to pay for a corn dough machine that they recently bought. This way, she will have a better income, and this together with her grocery store will improve her family's quality of life. With the income from this business, she dreams of raising pigs and chickens, since one of her sons has experience in this activity. They would work together for the family.
