Maria Belarmina
40-year old María Belarmina lives in the municipality of Nueva Guadalupe in the department of San Miguel. She is a widow and has three children aged 12, 15, and 18 who are dependent upon her. She earns her living by selling tortillas and pupusas (corn tortillas served with cheese or meat).

María started out selling enchiladas and potato cakes. Using her savings, she began her pupusa and tortilla business. She works every day of the week; from 8am to 4pm she sells tortillas, and then in the late afternoon sells pupusas. The money she earns supports the family.

María needs a loan to buy corn in quantity so that she is charged a lower price, as well as other products such as cheese, pork, and oil. The money will help pay for goods for her business and basic necessities for her family.

Her hopes for the future include continuing with her business so that she can help her children get an education and improve the quality of life for her family.
