A loan of $800 helped a member to buy corn at a discount for making and selling tortillas.


Dúo Genesis 2 Group's story

A member of Duo Genesis 2, Mrs. Elvia is 35 years old. She is the proprietor of a tortilla shop and the mother of 4 children, the youngest of whom is a special child. For approximately 12 years, Elvia has had her tortilla business. She says that it has helped her, since with these earnings, she has been able to contribute to the construction of her house.

Elvia neither wants nor desires that her children should have to face the level of life she did in her youth. Rather, she wants and dreams that her children should grow and study, becoming professional people. And at the same time, she is aware that this can only be achieved with great effort and perseverance.

For that reason, she knocked on the doors at FAPE, requesting a loan for purchasing prime materials for her business, since buying in larger quantities, results in discounts. She will be very grateful if her request is seriously considered.
