A loan of $800 helped to buy corn and the necessary materials to build a shed.


Eva Edelmira's story

Eva makes a living producing and selling tortillas. She lives with her family, husband and son. She learned her trade from her family and works with them. Eva has been doing this work for two years, working from 5am until 6pm.

Eva is applying for a loan to buy corn and the necessary materials to build a shed in the place where she makes the tortillas. This investment will help her with this building work, which will provide protection from the rain and give Eva a better quality of life. The loan will help her to buy more inventory for selling her products.

Eva's dream is to improve her home with the profits earned from the work she does.
