Mirta Josibel's story

Mirta, 33, is in a common law relationship with her husband and has four children; she lives in the municipality of San Marcos, Santa Bárbara. She’s been selling corn tortillas for 8 years. The loan she asked for is for 10,000 Lempiras that she’ll use to buy supplies like corn, firewood, bags, etc. needed to make tortillas.

This loan will help her grow more in business since she’ll have more customers. She also makes tortillas for events like birthdays, weddings, etc. and will be able to earn higher profits this way. Her goal is to make some home improvements and to be able to continue supporting her children’s schooling.
