A loan of $175 helped to buy corn and beans by the quintal.


Martha's story

Señora Martha is a hard-working woman. She has made and sold tortillas and cooked beans daily, every day of the week, from 5:00 am to 2:00 pm for 35 years. She started her business with her own money. Loans have helped her greatly since she has obtained a greater income and been able to get ahead, along with her daughter, bit by bit. With this loan, she will purchase corn and beans by the quintal. She used to buy from closer locations but it didn't work out. Her previous loan allowed her to maintain a stock and to avoid having to stop working; therefore, she kept her clients. For this reason, she is grateful for this opportunity and hopes that this new loan is authorized.
