A loan of $900 helped with working capital.


Santos Sofia's story

Sofia is 55 years old and lives with her husband and three children. She is a hard-working and responsible individual. She works making and selling tamales, a traditional corn-based food wrapped in a leaf. She does this at home, and uses her earnings to pay some household expenses and help her husband. Sofia is requesting a loan to buy more materials (leaves for the tamales, corn, vegetables, etc.) to make this food and continue supporting her family.
