A loan of $500 helped to buy supplies.


Maria Ercilia's story

Maria is 30 years old, is a single mother, lives with her parents, and has a three year old son. She sells tortillas in order to generate an income and help with the household expenses. She works Monday through Saturday from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm, learned this trade from her mother, and has been doing this for two years.

She will use the money from this loan to buy dried corn and propane gas to make tortillas. This will help her increase her income.

Her dream is to strengthen her business so that she can improve her financial condition.
