A loan of $400 helped to purchase corn, banana leaves, chicken, seasonings and oil.

Rosa Del Carmen's story

Rosa needs a loan to take advantage of the holiday season in November and December, making tamales. For this, she will have to buy corn, banana leaves, chicken, seasonings, oil among other products that are needed in order to sell tamales. Her previous loan had a positive effect; it helped her improve her business, as well as pay for some medical expenses for her youngest son. Her husband currently works, so both of them contribute to the household.
