A loan of $350 helped to buy oil, potatoes, corn for tamales, bananas, etc.


Iris Ivette's story

Iris is a merchant. She lives with her husband and three children in her own house and she works selling fast-food like fried potatoes, fried manioc, turnovers, tamales, etc. from place to place near her house. Thanks to her sales, she’s been able to cover her household expenses.

Iris is asking for financing to buy the ingredients she uses like oil, potatoes, corn for the tamales, bananas and everything else she needs to make the fast-food snacks so that she can continue supporting her home and covering expenses that may arise.
