A loan of $250 helped to buy corn, firewood and propane gas..


Xiomara Elizabeth's story

Xiomara is a 32-year old woman and single mother of a 1-year old boy. She works selling "tortillas" (thin corn pancakes), a business that she started 3 years ago thanks to a friend, and that allows her to cover the expenses of herself and the baby. She is requesting a loan to buy corn, firewood and propane gas, which are the necessary inputs for her business on a day-to-day basis. This loan will give her the financial support she needs to continue working.

Xiomara's biggest dream is to support her son and to provide him with a better life. Given that she is a single mother, she needs to keep improving her financial situation.
