Lucia's story

Lucia C. P., 35, lives in San Salvador department. She is a single mother of four, minor children, who are all in school. Lucia works seven days a week in her eatery where she sells breakfasts and lunches; in the evening she sells pupusas (maize dumpling). Her location is quite good because it has a lot of employees and students that pass by. Lucia is asking for funding to buy an oven because the one she currently uses is not hers and she must pay a monthly rental for its use so she would like to have her own. Lucia works every day to insure her children's well-being and makes an effort to provide them with the best since they are the motivating force for Lucia's daily efforts to improve her family's quality of life.
