A loan helped to buy tables and chairs for her business selling pupusas.


Lorena Del Carmen's story

Lorena studied until the ninth grade. She is married and her husband is a mason. She has three children who depend on her and two of them are minors.

Lorena helped her mom make and sell pupusas every afternoon and she now runs her own business. Her young son helps her with whatever he can.

Lorena will use this loan to buy tables and chairs for her pupusa business. In this way she will give her customers better service and she will generate better revenue.

She dreams of her children having careers.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Hasmin Sherwin.


This loan is special because:

It enables vulnerable women to start and grow their own business.
