A loan of $300 helped to buy corn to prepare and sell tortillas.


Antonia Del Carmen's story

Antonia is 51 years old. She has lived in her own home with her children since she was 12 years old. She spends a lot of her time working in her tortilla business and this is how she supports her family.

Every day, she wakes up very early to prepare the corn and make tortillas. There is a high demand for them by her neighbors. Antonia is a visionary woman who does not tire from working very hard.

She requests this loan from FUSAI to invest in her tortilla business. With this she can buy corn, which is her main input for her business.
