A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase quintales of corn and lime powder.

Reina De La Paz's story

Reina is 42 years old and lives in a rented house with her husband and two children, ages 15 and 17, who are both currently in school. For 11 years she has worked in making and selling tortillas. The business is located in her residence and she has many customers due to the cleanliness she maintains in the tortilla-making process and because of the good prices. She works Monday through Sunday and uses her income to pay some household expenses. Reina is requesting a loan to purchase quintales of corn and lime powder so she can continue her work, since it's her only source of income, and give her family everything they need without exception.
