A loan of $350 helped to buy corn on the cob and sugar at wholesale.

Celia Esperanza's story

Celia, 55, lives in her own house with her family; she’s worked making and selling tamales and corn ‘atol’ [corn-based beverage] outside her house for years. She has much demand especially on weekends which is when her foods are sold the most.

Celia’s asking for a loan to buy corn on the cob and sugar at wholesale to continue making her foods and earn higher profits to give her family better economic stability.
