Andrea De Jesús's story

Andrea de Jesús R., 46, lives in the Departamento de San Salvador. She lives with her four children, all still in school. Andrea is a modest woman of strong values, motivated to provide a decent life for her children. She works hard in the home, making and selling tortillas, and she also sells shampoo, cigarettes and spices.

Andrea is requesting a loan so she can buy a larger quantity of corn, as well as extra tanks of propane gas. She hopes to start her own shop selling household products. Since she is a single mother with four children, she must find a way to increase her earnings. This will greatly benefit her children, who are her inspiration to keep striving to achieve her goal of improving her business, always with the present and future of her children in view.
