Isirma is currently working in a restaurant where she sells pupusas [stuffed tortillas]. She has done this work for two years. She decided to work in this place to support herself in her studies. Her parents, because of their level of poverty, could not send her to school. However, she has decided to work hard so she can keep on studying this year and, God willing, she'll be able to graduate.
Her job is about 15 minutes from her house on the bus. She works from 6 a.m. until 1 p.m. from Monday through Friday, because she studies on Saturday.
The loan she's requesting from CrediCampo is to buy three sacks of soil amendments and a liter of poison. They'll rent the plot of land where she'll grow the corn. They already have it but with the loan she'll finish paying. This will help her a lot because the salary she earns making pupusas doesn't give her enough money all at once. That way she'll buy everything for the farming.
Her dreams are to be able to keep on studying, get an education, get a good job, and help her parents.
Isirma está trabajando actualmente en un comedor donde vende pupusas, ella se dedica a esto desde hace dos años, ella decidió trabajar en este lugar para mantenerse ella misma los estudios; ya que los padres por el nivel de pobreza no ajustaron a ponerla al bachillerato pero ella ha decidido esforzarse mucho y poder seguir estudiando este año si DIOS le permite podrá graduarse.
Este trabajo le queda a una distancia de 15 minutos de la casa y viaja en bus, este trabajo lo hace de las 6 am a la 1 pm de lunes a viernes ya que el sábado ella estudia.
El préstamo que está solicitando a CREDICAMPO, es para comprar tres sacos de abono y un litro de veneno, alquilaran la parcela donde sembrara el maíz, ya la tienen pero con el préstamo la terminaran de pagar esto le ayudara mucho ya que con el sueldo que tiene en la pupuseria no le ajusta para darle de una sola vez el dinero, pero así comprara todo para la agricultura.
Los sueños que tiene es siempre poder seguir estudiando, poder prepararse académicamente, conseguir un buen trabajo y ayudarle a sus padres.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of a project to help young men and women in El Salvador (under age 26) launch their own businesses. The field partner is reducing the guarantee for these individuals, who normally would not have access to loans due to their lack of experience. Unemployment for young people is high in El Salvador, a fact that motivates many of them to leave the country instead of searching for work. Aside from access to financing, clients will also be grouped together according to their business types to receive training from CrediCampo's social development unit, and to share advice and support with one another.
