A loan of $1,100 helped buy ingredients to make pig's feet stew.

Blanca Rosa's story

Blanca Rosa F. V. lives in Lourdes Colon in La Libertad Department. She lives with her daughter Jessica, who is 17 and currently in ninth grade. Blanca's husband is currently working outside El Salvador in order to help support his family economically. Even though Blanca receives help from her husband, she is a woman who works every day at her business, which she has been doing for the past eight years. She works in the Santa Tecla Market selling pig's feet stew, a dish that is very difficult to prepare and for which there is very high demand in El Salvador. Blanca is requesting a loan to buy more ingredients to make her soup, in order to increase her sales and fulfill her customers' demand for this popular dish.
