A loan of $525 helped a member to buy corn and firewood to make and sell tortillas.

Dúo Mujeres Del Rey Group's story

This duo includes María, 60, who is married and has no children living with her. She has sold tortillas for more than 40 years, and she is asking for this loan because she needs to buy quintals of corn. She also needs to buy firewood since she makes the tortillas in a clay comal (a traditional type of griddle) and her customers prefer her for this reason. It is advantageous to buy the wood and corn wholesale, and so her profits will be better. She is why she wants Fape/Kiva to help her. She does not want to stop working, because through her business, she has been able to move forward and have new opportunities that she didn't have before.
