A loan of $1,000 helped supply her business.


Adelita's story

Adelita Gutierrez D. L. lives in Soyapango municipality in San Salvador. She lives with her 2 daughters. Sara, 21, is working and has had to abandon her dream of entering the university because of the many expenses that Adelita has come up against. She also lives with Claudia who is 17 years old and is studying for her high school diploma.

Adelita has a store located in her house. The purpose of the loan that she is asking for is to invest in more products for her business because when the majority of the products are goodies the profit margin is minimal. For this reason she would like to supply her business with general merchandise that will generate additional revenue that will be very useful for her and her daughters.
