A loan of $1,100 helped to buy tables, gas and a new grill for making stuffed tortillas.


Rosa Antonia's story

Fifty-three year old Rosa is married. She has two daughters, both of whom are studying at university and who depend on Rosa financially. Rosa makes and sells stuffed tortillas. She works in the afternoons from Tuesday through to Sunday and her daughters help with the business. She has five years experience.

She is applying for a loan to buy tables, gas and a new grill for making the stuffed tortillas. The loan will help Rosa possibly to increase her income, by increasing her sales.

Her aim is to use the loan to strengthen her business and, with her work, offer better living conditions.
