A loan of $175 helped to buy corn and firewood to make soft and fried tortillas in her home based business.

Britania De Los Ángeles's story

Britania is a micro-entrepreneur who has been making soft and fried tortillas for about ten years. This product is made from corn and is an important nutriment in the food of Nicaraguans.

She needs a loan in order to buy corn and firewood so that she can buy the corn by quintal in order to greatly decrease the cost to produce the food.

Before having her own business she used to work as a maid in Managua, but in order to be closer to her two children and take care of them, she decided to open her own business in her residence.

With the earnings she received from her work, she provides food and security to her children, and also the personal household expenses and their studies. She is a single mother and very hardworking.
