Total loan: $375
Anamoros, La Unión Department, El Salvador / Retail
Pascual's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase basic grains, seasonings, sauces, dressings and vegetables for his store.
Pascual, 69 years old, is married and has 3 children. He is a leader in the church and in his community. His grandparents instilled good values in him and all that he knows, is largely due to them. He has been a farmer since was 35 years old. This is the family's primary source of income. His wife, in addition to caring for the house, runs a store and together they pay the household expenses. He asks for the loan to purchase basic grains, seasonings, sauces, dressings and vegetables for his store since those are what sell the most in this Christmas season and, since this business is in a very populated zone, it has good profits. One of his projections is to establish a pupusa business on the weekends, which would involve his wife and older daughter.
