More information about this loan

This loan is designed for rural women in El Salvador. Loan amounts are much smaller than average and the field partner is not requiring any guarantee for this type of loan. The goal is to support businesses that will enable women to work from their homes or start flexible businesses, as many of them are single mothers and are the sole caretakers for their families.
