Irma
Irma M. G., 34, lives in Soyapango, San Salvador department with her three children, who are 11, 10, and 9 years old. They are completely dependent on her because Irma is a single mother who doesn't receive any help from the father of her children.

For this reason, she works very hard to provide her three children with all they need. They, besides going to school, help her out in her business, which is a small grocery store located ín the market of Soyapango's Las Margaritas neighborhood. Her store is one of the best stocked ones so she has many customers thanks both to her excellent customer service and for her fair prices.

Irma is asking for funding to invest in stock items for her store, increasing the amounts on-hand of each item so that she can take care of a larger number of custoemrs. She is a very responsible woman who is very grateful that she can have her own business that allows her to provide for her children's every need.
