A loan of $325 helped to buy corn, wood, and lime for her business.


Maria Del Rosario's story

María lives in the city of Tegucigalpa, is married and the mother of a young, school-age daughter, and is hardworking and responsible. For two years, she has been making and selling tortillas from 11:00 am until 9:00 pm every day. Her business is located on the main road in her neighborhood, and her customers are the people who come through the area. They prefer her tortillas because they are well made and big. She also sells bean tamales twice a week to earn more income.

María is applying to Prisma for a loan to buy corn, wood, and lime at wholesale to receive the lowest prices. Her dream is to build a house and that her daughter finishes her education.
