María Luisa's story

María Luisa is the mother of 6 children. Every day she makes tortillas from 10:00AM until noon and later from 4:00PM until 6:00PM. She has her business at home in one of the neighborhoods in León, and makes her dishes in her house. She has been in this activity for 32 years and this is the way she supports her family.

María Luisa came to the Ceprodel offices to ask for a loan in order to buy products at wholesale such as: firewood and corn which she will use to make tortillas, corn and cocoa drinks, stew, and tamales, among other products.

She does this work in order to increase her income so that she can improve the quality of life for herself and her family.
