Making Dreams Come True for her Children

Paula Chavira lives in Buena Vista, Sonora and is a single parent of four.  She wisely used her cooking skills and a loan from Grameen de la Frontera – WE’s partner bank for the poor in Mexico - to start a tamale business in her home town.  She is now able to support her children as they attend school.

In fact, her eldest daughter, an excellent student, received a highly competitive scholarship from Grameen de la Frontera.  This allows her to follow her aspirations to become a dermatologist.
