A loan of $500 helped to buy materials to make corn tortillas.

Braulia's story

Braulia, age 56, lives in a rented house with her three children. Her two youngest children currently go to school. The older daughter is the one that helps her with the business.

Braulia has been selling corn tortillas, as shown in the photograph, for five years. She has her business at her house, and she has a lot of customers. She sells Mondays through Sundays. With the income that she gets she manages to get her family ahead.

She is requesting a loan to allow her to buy everything that she needs. She will buy things like corn, firewood, and gas, among other things. She will do this in order to continue with her business and to be able to give her family a better quality of life.
