A loan helped to purchase a kitchen for making and selling pupusas, as well as to purchase tables and chairs to provide more comfort to her customers in her business.


Rosa Lili's story

Rosa, 30 years old, studied until the ninth grade of school. Currently, she is single, and her two children are students.

Rosa makes a living from selling traditional food and selling tortillas. She has been doing these activities for 10 years. She has a lot of experience and she learned it all from her mother who all of her life has made a living from these activities. Additionally, on weekends she works in a restaurant on the edge of the beach.

She needs the loan to purchase a stove for making and selling pupusas. Additionally, she will purchase tables and chairs to provide more comfort to her customers in her business.

Rosa’s dreams are to make her business grow, provide for her children, and that they become professionals.
