A loan of $500 helped to buy cabbage, sauce, and vegetables to make stuffed tortillas.

Evelia's story

Evelia is thirty-seven years old, is married, and has four children (two girls and two boys). She has been working in making and selling tortillas for three years and some months, at a locale located on the sidewalk close to the community market. Before, she worked at PROCAFE, and then with UNE for eight years. Today, she sells her tortillas and her husband makes a living in metal structures work.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy cabbage, sauce, and vegetables in order to make her stuffed tortillas. In the month of February, the feast days for the patron saint of her town are celebrated. Therefore, she will set up her tortilla stand in order to obtain higher revenue so that she can sustain her family. With the profits, she also will be able to improve her home.
