A loan of $500 helped to open another tamale stall in the market and to pay for another person to sell them.


Sara's story

Sara is 39 years old. She doesn't have a lot of schooling and only went up to the 6th grade because her parents didn't support her. She is married and her husband is a bricklayer. She lives with her two children who are in school.

For several years, she has worked making and selling chicken tamales. Her mother taught her the business and her older daughter helps her sell in the market.

She will use the loan to open another tamale stall in the market and to pay for another person to sell them. This way, she will have more income and she can fulfill her needs.

The client's objective is to keep growing her business and for her family to lack for nothing and keep working with the institution.
