A loan of $575 helped to buy firewood, corn and lime powder.

Paula Marina's story

Paula works making soft tortillas. She will use her loan to buy corn, firewood and lime powder, ingredients needed for her final product. She’s 36-years-old and the mother of two school age children. She’s been in said activity for 16 years and her business is located in a centrally located street which is favorable for selling all she makes. It’s important to mention that she uses her time to the maximum because she works as a domestic employee mornings earning a little extra for her family and to be able to fill her obligations so she’s only able to make corn tortillas in the afternoon.
