A loan of $500 helped to invest in her business selling tortillas by purchasing things like firewood and corn.

María Antonia's story

María, 68, rents a home where she lives with her partner. They have 2 children who are grown and have their own families and live in another city. She works selling tortillas, which she makes on a stove on the patio of her home. She has been doing this for 18 years. Before that, she did domestic services (washing and ironing clothing, cooking, etc) in different homes.

Maria asks for a loan from CrediCampo which she will invest in her tortilla business, since there is a lot of demand and right now she is running low on inputs like firewood and corn - some of the main things she needs for her sales.

Her biggest dream is to buy her own home so that she will live comfortably in privacy, without having to pay rent and risk being evicted at any moment.
