but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy a new stove and supplies in order to sell pupusas [a thick corn tortilla stuffed with cheese, fried pork rind, chicken, or refried beans].


Vanesa Del Carmen's story

Vanessa is in a relationship. Her partner raises cattle. They have 2 children, one of whom is attending school.

Vanesa sells pupusas [a thick corn tortilla stuffed with cheese, fried pork rind, chicken, or refried beans]. She has her business in her house and her children and a sister are also involved. She does the preparations for the pupusas in the morning, and she makes them in the afternoon.

Vanesa needs a loan to buy a new stove and supplies in order to sell pupusas. She wants her business to improve, to better herself and to give the best to her children. She trusts God that, with effort, she will be able to achieve this.
