Maria Antonia Receives All Supplies To Start Her Tortilla Making Business

6 July 2010 One Comment

The income generating project for Maria Antonia Pol has been completed.  Thanks to your wonderful efforts, Maria and her grandmother now have all the supplies that they need to open their own tortilla-making business. Maria will operate her business from a rental that is close to her home and she has also secured the help of her cousin in addition to her grandmother. They will make fresh tortillas three times a day, as this is a staple of the Guatemalan diet.

Maria is excited about the opportunity you have given her and she promises to do her best.

An industrial stove
A large supply of corn
2000 plastic bags
Table and chairs
Plastic storage containers
Pots and pans
Tablecloths
3 months’ propane gas
7 months’ rent

Read a letter of thanks from Maria Antonia and see photos of her with the gifts.
