A loan of $275 helped to buy an electric corn grinder.


Consuelo De Jesús's story

Consuelo is 67 years old. She is a dignified woman who is admired and respected. She is the single mother of three children, whom she raised and got ahead. Because her spouse abandoned her with out offering any financial support, this woman decided to work for herself and she created her own business making arepas. She does this activity every day from her home and it has given her family food and education.

Today Consuelo is asking for a loan to buy an electric corn grinder. This will allow her to reduce production time and increase her profit margin. She dreams of being able to make her business a great business offering other people employment access.
