A loan of $750 helped to buy corn and propane gas.


María Isabel's story

María Isabel R. is 41 years old and lives in the city of Soyapango, located in the department of San Salvador. She lives with her 18 year old son who is going to school. María sells and makes tortillas. This business allows her to have everything necessary for her home, since María is the only person that works. She is seeking a loan through Integral (Kiva’s field partner) so that she can have the necessary amount of money to buy corn wholesale to have a lower price in the raw product, as well to buy additional tanks of propane gas to have a small supply of it since it sometimes becomes scarce and the price rises which means a great loss in profits. María wishes to improve her sales by serving a greater quantity of customers so that she can have greater economic stability so wished by her and her son.
