Domitila's story

Domitila lives in the city of Tegucigalpa. She’s married and has four children two of which still live with her. She’s been making and selling tortillas for 21 years. She starts her activity at 5am and goes until 7pm every day of the week. Her children who have worked alongside her since they were little help her out; they also attend local public schools in the city.

Most of Domitila’s sales are to neighbors and people who pass by her house. She’s requesting a 20,000 Lempira loan to buy cement, sand, brick and rebar to build a wall at home. One of Domitila’s dreams is to finish building her house to provide better quality of life for her children.
