A loan of $175 helped to repair the truck she uses to transport merchandise for her business.

Susana Elizabeth's story

Susana is 38 years old and lives in Delicias de Concepción, located in the Department of Morazán, with her four children: Adolfo (26), Elizabeth (14), Raquel (10) and Gerson (6). She has worked selling fruits and vegetables for three years and she has a street stand near the San Francisco Gotera market. She works in this business because she needs to earn money to cover her childrens’ needs.

She is requesting a loan to repair the vehicle that she uses to transport the merchandise for her business, as it has been having mechanical problems lately and it is risky for her to continue traveling like this. This loan will help her to cover this expense in order to have a vehicle in good condition.

Susana’s goal is to look out for the household’s needs and to get her children ahead in life with post-secondary studies.
