A loan of $325 helped to buy firewood and corn.

Marta Isabel's story

Marta, who is 48 years of age, is a very honest and hardworking person. She is determined to give every opportunity to her two children who are minors and who have done well thanks to her hard work. She has been selling tortillas for several years. She prepares the tortillas at midday every day from Monday to Sunday. The money she earns from this activity enables her to support her family; the household depends entirely on her income.

Marta is requesting this loan in order to buy corn at wholesale prices, which are lower, and also to buy a larger quantity of firewood. In this way Marta will have the opportunity to improve her profits.
