Iris Cristela's story

Iris is requesting a new loan because of the good service and ease of payment provided by the institution. She will use the money to buy oil, basic grains, vegetables, sugar, and pork cracklings among other products, to stock up her inventories for her store and for making and selling pupusas [filled corn tortillas].

She says that the previous loan really helped her because today she has a more diversified inventory in the store, and her sale of pupusas has also grown. She adds that thanks to God, everything is going well, which motivates her to keep working.

Her family group remains the same and her economic situation is stable, due to the fact that sales have improved and thus she generates more income.
