A loan of $525 helped buy raw material to make food.


María Eugenia's story

María Eugenia M. R., 53, lives in the La Libertad department with her husband and their three children. She has her own business; she makes “pupusas” (flatbread stuffed with meat, cheese, or vegetables) and prepares lunches. María is is very popular because she is a very clean and excellent cook. She has over five years experience in the kitchen.

María is asking for a loan to be able to buy raw material like corn, beans, and cheese to make food. This is because she wants to be able to take care of a larger quantity of customers. It is only possible if she has the raw material.
