A loan of $275 helped to buy corn and firewood.


María Lucrecia's story

Maria makes a living selling corn tortillas (both soft and toasted), which are a very popular Nicaraguan food. Her mother taught her how to make these when she was 14 years old. Since then, she has had the idea of making a business out of producing these tortillas. Maria is a single mother of two school-aged children. With her earnings from this tortilla business, she provides for her family's household, educational, and medical expenses. She is a hardworking woman who is dedicated to her children.

Maria needs this loan in order to buy corn in bulk as well as firewood. This will help her to reduce the cost of producing her tortillas.
