A loan of $1,000 helped to buy ingredients.

Blanca Estela's story

Blanca Estela M. D. C. lives with her daughter, who works as a teacher while also studying at university. They also live with Blanca's granddaughter and brother, who works as a tailor. For 30 years, Blanca has run a shop that sells pupusas which are corn tortillas stuffed with cheese, beans, and pork, then grilled. She has had to work very hard, especially since she is a widow and cannot rely upon anyone else for support, so every day she strives to make enough to live with dignity. Blanca is asking for a loan so that she can buy the ingredients for her pupusas. It is the only way for her to get enough money to cover her costs. She hopes to increase her sales and improve her business, making it the best in the neighbourhood. She hopes that people will recognize the quality of her service.
