María Esther's story

María Esther R. lives in the city of Arce with her five children. She sells tortillas, and three of her children help her by making the tortillas and attending to customers. Maria Esther is requesting a loan to invest more capital in her business, and to meet some basic needs of the business such as the purchase of firewood, corn and a new iron to make tortillas. In spite of the fact that Maria Ester is elderly, she works very hard to provide a dignified existence, meeting all the necessities for her and her children. That is why she wants to improve the quality of her business in order to increase her sales and her family income.
