Marta Lilian's story

Marta Lilian C. is 39 years of age and lives in Mejicanos, which i in the San Salvador department . She lives with her grown up daughter, her grandson, and her son-in-law. Over the last ten years Marta has earned a living making quesadillas, a traditional type of bread which is very popular. Because she has worked in this business for so long, Marta has many customers, and she delivers the quesadillas to their door.

Marta is a very responsible and hardworking person who has high hopes of improving her business as it is her only source of income. For this reason she is requesting a loan to purchase all of the necessary quesadilla ingredients including cheese, flour and sesame seeds, among others, so she can make more quesadillas and cater for a more orders for this Christmas season.
