Lorena Esmeralda
Lorena, 36, is single. She has made a living selling "pupusas" [stuffed tortillas] on buses for eight years. It was her husband who taught her this business. She gets up very early to get ready. This way Lorena has been able to give her two children, who are adults, the necessities. She buys the materials she needs, such as corn, by the quintal.

The loan she's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy four sacks of corn, meat, and soft cheese to make the pupusas.

This will help her increase her sales and, of course, her income to financially support her family. She wants to have more vendors to cover the bus routes.

La señora Lorena tiene 36 años de edad, es soltera. Se dedica al comercio de pupusas en los buses desde hace 8 años. Se levanta muy temprano a preparar la venta; fue su madre quien le enseño ese negocio. De esa forma Lorena ha podido brindarles lo necesario a sus dos hijos que ya son mayores de edad. Los materiales que necesita como el maíz, los compra por quintales.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 4 sacos de maíz, carne y quesillo para elaborar las pupusas. Esto le servirá para incrementar sus ventas y por supuesto sus ingresos para apoyar económicamente a su familia. Ella desea disponer de más vendedores para cubrir las rutas de autobuses.
