Blanca Marvin
Blanca is 35 years old and a very responsible mother who gives her all to her work so that she can help her husband with the family expenses. Blanca makes and sells tortillas in the afternoons and evenings, seven days a week. She must work hard because she has some steady customers who saturate her, especially at peak times. This business has been a great help to Blanca and the rest of the family. She is asking for this loan so that she can buy corn in quantity, firewood, salt, and a refrigerator which will be a great help to her. Making tortillas is hard work, but Blanca does it with a positive attitude and knows that this way she will be able to provide her children with all they need.
