A loan of $800 helped purchase corn in bulk.


Juana Isabel's story

Juana Isabel Q. D. P. resides in El Transito, which is located in the Department of San Miguel in the eastern part of the country. She lives with her two children, ages 9 and 6. The older child is in elementary school, while the younger one attends kindergarten. Juana’s husband lives in the United States. He works extremely hard and is able to send remittances each month.

Juana has a tortilla shop in her house where she prepares tortillas at noon and in the evening. This product is a staple of the Salvadoran diet and is consumed every day, up to three times a day, since it is usually accompanied with each meal. This is a great benefit to Juana since she already has customers who consume much of what she makes.

She is requesting a loan so that she will have the funds needed to purchase corn in bulk. This will allow her to buy at lower prices, which will be a great help since she will be able to generate better earnings.
