Blanca Lidia's story

Blanca is 46 years old, she only studied up to first grade, she is not married and only has one dependent daughter.

She has been working making and selling tortillas for more than 10 years. She runs this business from home and that is where her customers come to buy tortillas. She also has daily orders from various eateries in town. She learned this trade from her mother who was also in this line of work. Only one of her daughters works in the business with her.

She is asking for the loan to do home improvements; and also to buy raw ingredients to make tortillas; 4 quintals of flour, 1 cartload of firewood and 20 pounds of lime.

Her dream is for the business to grow, to generate more income and thus live in a better environment.
