    $50
    This loan is fully funded
    Luciano is from Mexico. He has 4 children. He needs a loan of $450 to buy flour, fix his tortilla machine, and install a gate outside his business. .
    Learn More
    Luciano runs a tortilleria. With a previous loan he was able to purchase a small tortilla machine. With this new loan he would like to buy flour, fix some things on his tortilla machine, and to install a gate outside of his business. In the past he did not have enough maize to make enough tortillas to sell to make a profit. He also did not have a fence around his home, so he could never leave his business alone without locking the front doors, and it was sometimes difficult for him to help with his family. He hopes that his business can grow and that at some point he will be running a good enough business to open a second location. With the money from this he will be able to ensure that all of his children go to school and can study at university. Because of his better profits, he is now able to sell his tortillas with the paper that they are wrapped in without charging for the paper. This is not a normal thing to do and it gives him a competitive advantage. Luciano Aquino Garcia has 4 children and lives in San Andres de la Cañada.
