Magdalena De La Paz's story

Magdalena lives with her spouse and two daughters. Her daughters' ages are 15 and 17, both are financial dependents.

Magdalena works tending a stand in which she sells pupusas and candies. She works from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. Magdalena explains that she learned this trade on her own and that she managed to open her own business one year ago. The advantage she has is that she has a product which is in high demand.

She is asking for a loan to have financial resources which will allow her to expand the inventory of her business. The investment will consist of the purchase of beverages, candies, pork rinds, corn, and other products to sell and also to make and sell pupusas. The loan will help her to offer new products to her customers. With this, she will have the opportunity to increase her sales and earnings.

Her dream is to expand her business with new products to keep her customers satisfied.
