A loan of $1,300 helped to reopen the store and also to start selling tortillas again.

María Angelica's story

María, 35, is a single mother of two children. She’s been making tortillas for the last ten years, an occupation she learned from her mother. María used to just work doing her domestic chores at home but later on installed a small store and started also selling tortillas. Due to life’s circumstances, she stopped doing so. The loan she’s asking from Fundación Campo will be used to reactivate the store; she will buy basic staples and also to restart the tortilla sales. Both businesses will be home-based.

She is seeking to restart her businesses because she needs an additional source of income to cover all her family expenses such as health, schooling, food, etc., even more so because she’s who watches over her children’s well-being. Her greatest wish is that her children become professionals so they can improve their quality of life.
