Juana De La Cruz's story

Juana D. La Cruz R. D. S. is 41 years old. She is a resident of Soyapango, where she lives with her husband and her four children, who are not yet grown and are attending school. Juana has a pupusería [a business making pupusas, or filled corn tortillas] located in the house where she lives. She has run this business for 8 years, with the single aim of achieving a better life for her family. She is requesting a loan so that she can invest in her business by purchasing all of the ingredients needed to prepare pupusas, such as: pork, cheese, beans, corn and vegetables to make the curtido [a slaw-like salad] and salsa which accompany the pupusas. In this way, Juana wants to serve more customers and thus improve her sales.
