Dúo Solidario Concepcion Group's story

Doña María Luisa, 47 years old, is part of Duo Solidario Concepción. She is a widow, and lives with her son and her daughter-in-law, her son's wife. Doña María has a tortilla-making business with 2 employees who help her make the tortillas. The business is located on Calle Real in the Old City. She is requesting a loan in order to purchase inputs such as corn and firewood and save money by buying wholesale, as she has a lot of demand from her customers. Her dream is to be able to improve her business and sell other kinds of food, as her customers request, and also have another tortilla stall, and with this be able to build her house.
