A loan of $300 helped to buy corn, firewood, and lime for her business.


Maria Mirtalina's story

Maria, 51, lives in her house with one child, who is a dependent. She is a single mother who strives to provide for her family. For 7 years, she has been selling tortillas.

Maria makes her sales from her house. Her customers are her friends and neighbors who prefer her because of her attentive service.

Maria is requesting a loan to buy corn, firewood and lime, which are the raw materials used to make tortillas. She wants to make her purchases at wholesale, because with sufficient products, she can increase her income and improve her quality of life.

Maria's dream is to improve her house.
