A loan of $300 helped to buy materials to make tamales.


Sara's story

Sara, 52, lives with her children in her own house. She makes a living selling tamales and has had the business for several years. She sells on the outskirts of the area where she lives. She's very well known and has acquired a lot of customers.

Sara's a responsible woman who's dedicated to her job. With her profits she has been able to get her two children ahead.

She wants to invest in her business because of demand she has, but she needs capital to be able to do it. That's why she's requesting a loan to help her buy all the materials to make her tamales: plantain leaves, corn, chicken, vegetables, etc.

She has a good payment record and is certain she'll be able to repay the debt and give her family a better quality of life without any limitations.
