A loan of $800 helped to buy larger amounts of corn.

Virginia's story

Virginia, 71, has a spouse and five children but only three of them live with her. For the last 12 years she’s made and sold tortillas, an activity she learned from her mother. To buy the corn which is the main ingredient to make tortillas she must travel to another community that’s three kilometers away.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy corn in larger amounts. With this investment she will buy a larger amount of corn because she’s the only tortilla maker where she lives. Income will be of much use because she still has a daughter in school and she wants to give her everything necessary and to provide stability for her entire family.
