Telma Yaneth's story

Telma is a widow and mother of two children who are 7 and 14 years old. Her husband died one year ago. She has to work to support her children and she does so buy selling tortillas. She has been doing this business for three years and learned it from her mother.

She needs support for the business; buying enough corn and firewood to make her sales. With the loan, she will have the money to strengthen the business and work continuously.

Her goal with the loan is to generate stability in the business as this will allow her to have a secure source of income to send her children to school and be able to feed them.
