A loan of $500 helped buy corn and beans.


Petronila's story

Petronila H. D. R. is 49. She lives in Verapaz with her husband, a driver for a transportation association; her daughter; and three grandchildren.

Petronila sells vegetables, fruit, bread, and “pupusas” (a stuffed thick tortilla like El Salvadorian dish). Her daughter helps her with the business, and together they work arduously.

Petronila is asking for a loan to be able to buy corn and beans for the pupusas, because that is what she sells the most.
