A loan of $500 helped to buy corn and firewood.

Antonia Del Carmen's story

Antonia’s a micro businesswoman in her community and her main source of income is selling tortillas at wholesale and retail; she does this at home.

Antonia’s customers are grocery stores and factory employees in the city. She’s been in this occupation for 14 years and was able to build her house thanks to this business.

Antonia is asking for another loan since her previous one was of great help to her because she repaired the stove she had that consumed much wood. Now, she wants to buy corn and firewood because they are difficult to get in winter at a good price. She dreams with having a semi-industrial tortilla shop and to be able to increase her sales and profits to be able to retire a bit from the fire’s smoke that damages her health.
