Alma Lorena's story

Alma, age 51, works selling tortillas out of her home. For the past 18 years she has worked Monday through Sunday, and she has a lot of customers since she is a very friendly and hardworking person. With the earnings she has obtained she has managed to pay the cost of her home. She lives in her own house with her husband and two children. Alma requests a loan to buy corn by the quintal to continue making tortillas, and make greater profits to have better economic stability with her family.
