Let’s Taco About It

Feel Good Friday

Everyone around the world has a staple food they were raised on.  Some rice-and-shine to a bowl of white rice.  Others have baking bread in the baguette.  And others roll out corn tortillas that taste a-maize-ing!

Guatemala is one of those tortilla havens.  And with our most recent loan going to a group of tortilla makers there, we thought it was time to taco about it!

Maria's Tortilla Team

Meet Maria and her tortilla makin' team.  These Guatemalan women are using their loan to buy corn and cooking fuel to expand their "tortilleria".  With more money for supplies, they'll grow their business and sell tortillas throughout their neighborhood for all to corn-sume!

So "ears" to Maria & her corn tortilla team, and to feeling good—because after all, it's Friday!
