Santos Aída's story

Santos Aída R. B., 53, lives in Armenia with her three children. The children work. She has a “pupusa” (corn tortillas stuffed with cheese, beans, and pork, then grilled) stand near the Health Unit of Armenia. The location is beneficial because the people who have appointments come to eat at her stand.

Santos is asking for a loan to be able to buy vegetables, meat, and drinks. One of her goals is to expand her business and have a restaurant. Santos stands out as being a very visionary woman who wants to keep improving more every day for her own sustenance.
