A loan of $1,000 helped to buy corn in bulk, and lime.


Ana Rosa's story

Ana is 39 years old and lives in her own house with her husband and three children. Ana is very responsible and her biggest priority to help her family to prosper. Ana sells tortillas at lunchtime and in the evening. She has her stall at her home, where her daughter helps her to distribute the tortillas, especially at the weekend. Ana would very much like to be able to improve her business as it is providing her with stable profits which allow her to support her family. So, Ana is applying for a loan to buy corn in bulk, and lime. She will use this to make a larger number of tortillas, particularly at the weekend when demand increases due to many other tortilla stall being closed. With more tortillas she Ana will be able to make higher profits, which will allow her to improve her financial stability.
