Jackelyn Gabriela
Jackelyn, 29, is a person who is very devoted to her family. She lives with her mother and father and a young nephew, aged 13. Her family is small, but she works arduously for them. Jackelyn has been making tortillas for 15 years. She used to help her mother in the business, but now, due to her mother's advanced age, Jackelyn works on her own. She has many regular customers who have traditionally consumed her tortillas. Jackelyn is requesting a loan so that she can buy corn at wholesale and firewood to cook the corn. This way she could save on propane gas, and so this will be much cheaper for her.
