María Candelaria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy a stove to make pupusas; and to buy beans, rice, corn, snacks, drinks, etc. to sell in her store.


María Candelaria's story

María is married and has no children. Her husband drives a taxi.

María works making and selling pupusas [thick, corn tortillas stuffed with savory fillings]. She learned this trade in a restaurant where she was employed. Her business is located at her house. She works from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. Her sister helps her with her work. María also has a small store of staple goods.

She needs a loan to buy a stove to make pupusas; and to buy beans, rice, corn, snacks, drinks, etc. to sell in her store. María's dream is to make her business grow and improve her income.
