A loan of $550 helped buy corn to make tortillas.


Norma Luz's story

43-year old Norma is a single mother. She is a very responsible woman whose main priority is to see her two children do well in life. She has a business selling the tortillas she has made between midday and the evening. Her business is located in her house, and her daughters help her distribute the tortillas especially at weekends. Norma really wants to improve her business because it provides a stable income that allows her to support her family. For this reason she is seeking a loan to buy corn in bulk and lime so she can make a greater quantity of tortillas especially on weekends when demand increases because many other tortilla makers close their businesses. In this way she will be able to earn more money allowing her to have more financial stability.
