Both loans are being made to individuals who will produce food from their residences. The loans are unsecured for a year. If the businesses are properly operated and the owners save some of the profits, the final loan payment is forgiven. The business will then be eligible for a second year loan as needed.
One loan is going to Maria Alonso, who will bake cakes for sale. The other loan is provided to Antelma Garay, who will produce tortillas.
