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

A loan helped to purchase a griddle and tables for her business.

Maria Ilda's story

Maria, 57 years old, studied through ninth grade. She is partnered and together they have a small restaurant. They live alone, since their children live apart because they are grown. Maria has been working for several years selling food and pupusas (traditional Salvadoran stuffed tortillas), which is how she managed to raise her children and continue in the same business. Her schedule is from 5-7pm. She will use the loan to purchase a griddle and tables so her business expands, due to the high demand from her customers. This way she will be manage to satisfy the demand. Maria's dream is to continue working with her life partner forever, to continue to get more income, and in this way, manage to cover their needs.
