Cristina Jeanette
Cristina is 26 years old and lives in the Usulután department with her father and two older brothers, one of whom works as a businessman and the other as a mason. Cristina is the single mother of a four year old son, whom she struggles daily to provide for. She has a food stall in the city marketplace in Jiquilisco and has many customers, most of whom work in the same location. She prepares breakfast and lunches and different types of natural beverages.

Cristina is asking for this loan in order to buy fruits, vegetables, basic grains (corn and beans) and other ingredients that she uses to prepare her dishes. She does this in hopes that she will increase her sales and be able to better contribute toward the household expenses and continue to provide for her son’s needs, such as food, clothing, and a home.
