Juana Maria's story

Juana still has only one source of income - selling tortillas and cooked beans. She is exposed to the heat of the fire and the wood smoke all day as she makes her tortillas. Meanwhile, her husband also works to contribute to the household expenses and, in this way, they support their children who are growing every day and are enrolled in school. This loan, the fourth she has applied for, will be used to finish building a wall in her home so as to improve her family's living conditions and ensure her sons' safety.
