A loan of $300 helped to buy corn by the quintal and lime.


Rosa Elena's story

Rosa lives in her own house with her four children, ages 15, 12, 4 and 1. She works selling tortillas from her house. For several years she has worked from Monday to Sunday. She has many customers because she is a very hardworking and kind person. With the earnings that she obtains and the help of her husband they manage to cover the household expenses. Rosa is requesting a loan to buy corn by the quintal and lime to continue making tortillas and thus obtain better earnings in order to have better financial stability with her family.
