Alicia Guadalupe
Alicia, age 42, sells “pupusas” (stuffed tortillas). She lives with her husband and their two children, ages 24 and 26. The oldest child is no longer economically dependent upon her. She has had this business for two years; she and her daughter take care of the business. She also makes hammocks. She started these businesses on her own initiative, always seeing a way to have income to pay the family expenses.

She needs to invest partly in materials like chicken, pork rinds, and oil. She will also invest in materials like different colors of silk yarn to weave hammocks. That is why she is requesting a loan. She will use the loan to make the necessary purchases to have the raw materials she uses to make the things she sells.

Alicia’s projections are to establish a large pupusa shop with lots of customers, to increase the number of hammocks she makes, and to improve the family income.
