A loan of $800 helped purchase corn & propane.


Marta Alicia's story

Marta Alicia O. is 43 years old and resides in the beautiful town of Izalco, located in the Department of Sonsonate. She lives with her 76 year old mother, who helps her with her business, and her three dependent children who dedicate themselves to their work. Marta has a “tortillería” where she is responsible for preparing and selling tortillas, which sell very well because they are part of the everyday diet of Salvadorans. Tortillas are served at all three meals, but mostly consumed at lunch. Marta is a single mother who works with great effort so that her children can get ahead. She sells her products Monday through Sunday.


Marta is requesting a loan to purchase corn in large quantities. At the same time, she will buy canisters of propane so that she will have enough materials on hand for making and cooking the tortillas.
