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


Maria Lucila's story

María, 50, is a single mother who lives in her own house with her children. She's a very responsible woman whose main priority is to get her two children ahead.

She has a tortilla business in her house where she makes tortillas every afternoon and evening. María very much wants to be able to improve her business because it gives her very stable profits that allow her to support her family.

This is why she's requesting a loan to buy corn wholesale and lime so she can make tortillas in quantity, especially on the weekend. This is when her demand increases, because other tortilla shops are closed and she can get better profits to improve her economic stability.
