Gregoria's story

Gregoria, 44, lives with her husband and three children in their own house. For four years she has been selling tortillas to the customers who visit her home.

With the help of her daughters, Gregoria makes tortillas every day, Monday through Sunday. She is a hard worker and has borrowed loans through Prisma on three occasions, with a good payment record. This Christmas season she also wants to sell clothing.

Gregoria is requesting a loan to buy corn, firewood, lime water and blouses, skirts, pants, dresses, etc. With the support of the loan she wants to buy more raw materials for her business and buy clothing to sell as a new product line.

She hopes to earn more profits. Her dream is to improve her house and quality of life.
